    Default Best test to ask for at the vets

    Hi to all of my friends here at English Bulldog News Forum! Its been a while since I have logged on and I see a lot of new members and new bully faces.

    I was wondering what would be the best test to have your bully undergo when visiting the vets for a yearly check up?? I have read that a complete blood test would be the most important one.

    Mocha is 2 and I just worry that I am not being agressive enough when it comes to what tests and things to ask for for Her. She is in good health and happy and I want to keep it that way for as long as I can. I have read about some of our memebers loosing their beloved bullies and it breaks my heart and also worries me so much

    Thank you in advance for your sugestions

    After a certain age... the vet will do liver/kidney check ups.

    i honestly dont know of any test to specifically ask for but i have heard of people getting blood drawn and their dogs levels checked for various things to make sure all is ok. also heartworm is a biggy for me since sarah had them last year. also worms can be a problem.
