I’m aware of the basic health testing such as HCM, FELV/FIV, FIP, however what other health testing do you guys suggest doing. I was looking at the UC Davis Lab and they seem to have a large selection of tests.

Honestly, if there are no issues of illness or concern, we just see the vets yearly. :)

Here in the Netherlands they're not into resting when there are no health issues. It's great you look into it!

I think HCM testing is probably the only one that you might want to look into. Other than that, I think I agree with the suggestion to see the vet once a year for regular screening. I'm assuming your cats are indoors the whole time so it's not like they'd be exposed to all kinds of stuff like outdoor cats.
