Evaluating essential vitamin levels should start once the dog or cat reaches adult stages and establishes their adult diet. Once diet has been stable for 3 months, test baseline vitamins and correct any insufficiencies with supplementation, or consider a diet change if values are considerably low. Recheck intervals are every year once sufficient unless diet or health changes occur.
