Subject: Routine Health Care question

Is it okay to ask a question about routine health care here? My boys
are 2 years old and will be going in for their yearly exam and
vaccinations. Since they are now 2 years old, is there anything special
I need to make sure the vet does? I have read that blood tests should
be taken at age two....I have also read that blood tests aren't really
necessary. They get their rabies and distemper 3 weeks apart-should
blood be taken at the same time, or should it be done a couple weeks
later? Should it be drawn or taken by clipping the nail? I would be
very interested to read what others recommend for this exam! Thanks is
