I personally think that doing annual bloodwork can be a great thing, that way you can see how the organs are functioning and see if they change at all from year to year. This allows you to pick up on any particular issues that might arise before they become so bad that you are treating something like a kidney failure dog for example.What tests are routinely performed in a yearly checkup and what specific tests should a dog owner insist on that is not routine?
If they do, its a free exam and you are free to leave. Its just a recommendation to go to this vet. In any vet treats you like that, just simply tell them that you are no longer interested in being a client and walk away. Remember that a vet is working for you. They are the ones that must fit what you are looking for. There are a lot of vets out there that have that "don't question me" attitude, but they are usually the ones that don't stay up on the times and stay open minded. The healthcare system is an ever-changing one, so they must stay on their toes to provide the most current and up to date practices. For example, limiting vaccine schedules has been shown to drastically decrease many common issues in dogs...like cancer and allergies.I'll be taking my dog for his first checkup at the recommendation of the shelter from whom I recently adopted.
I hope he or she does not get their "Back Up" because some professionals do not like to be questioned. "Its like "How Dare You Question My Integrity".
