The geriatric blood panel just tests for more things, Thumpy. It checks organ function more thoroughly and usually things like thyroid levels. As our dogs are getting older, we've started doing the geriatric panels on some of them yearly, just to keep ahead of the inevitable health issues.... They are, of course, more expensive than just a CBC.
