Veterinary Diagnostic Lab
For diagnostic imaging, we use electromagnetic radiation and other technologies to produce highly detailed images of your pet's internal organs and structures.
At Fremont Veterinary Clinic, we leverage advanced tools to help accurately diagnose your pet's medical issues. We are here to guide our patients through the diagnostic process and offer a range of services, including digital radiology.
With our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we're able to efficiently produce accurate diagnostic information about your pet's condition and provide immediate treatment options.

Our Diagnostic Services
We are pleased to offer advanced diagnostic testing at our in-house veterinary diagnostics lab, which helps our vets provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical condition.
- Radiography (Digital X-rays)
Radiographs (digital X-rays) allow us to assess your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Using a radiograph (digital x-ray), we can examine your pet's internal systems to reveal information that may be invisible from the outside.
Radiography is a painless, safe, non-invasive procedure that uses only very low doses of radiation. Since the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is so low, even very young pets and pregnant females are able to undergo this procedure.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate organs and bones, and to diagnose conditions including chronic arthritis, bladder stones, spinal cord diseases, fractured bones and some tumors.
At our vet lab in Stockton, we are able to perform many common and specialized blood tests to determine your pet's health, and to diagnose illness.
Some of the most common veterinary blood tests we do are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC, hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile.
Urinalysis is a key diagnostic test that provides your vet with essential insights into the physical and chemical properties of your pet's urine.
Urinalysis is primarily used to assess the health of your animal's kidneys and urinary tract system, but it can also be helpful in detecting issues in other organ systems and is important for diagnosing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.
This is a valuable diagnostic test for both healthy and sick animals and should be included in any comprehensive evaluation of your pet's overall health.
- Fecal Exams
A fecal exam is the microscopic examination of your pet's feces, which can be done at our in-house vet lab in Stockton.
The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any GI infections that could be compromising your pet's health and even the health of your family. Fecals allow your vet to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms.
Parasites can make pets uncomfortable, irritable, and lead to more serious conditions. Some can even be transmitted to humans.
Since these parasites live in your pet’s gastrointestinal tract, they are often hidden from view. The only way to detect them is with a fecal exam.
Annual fecal examines should be a vital part of every pet's routine wellness exam.
- Digital Dental X-Rays
If your cat or dog is suffering periodontal disease, much of this damage occurs below the gum line where it can't be easily seen. Digital dental X-rays help our veterinarians assess your pet's oral health.
Digital X-rays are safer for your pet. They allow our team of veterinary professionals to examine roots, bones and internal anatomy of your cat or dog's teeth.
With digital X-rays, the risk of radiation exposure for your pet is significantly lower than with traditional X-Ray technology. We are able to see below the surface of your pet's gum line to fully evaluate each tooth.
This technology allows your Stockton vet to see results immediately, then project them onto a computer screen to review.
