Cat & Dog Imaging & Diagnostics in Dyer, IN

While our veterinarians and staff are experts at picking up on subtle signs of illness, your pet’s health is even more complex. To comprehend it all, we need the help of veterinary diagnostics that can see what our eyes can’t. We perform comprehensive blood work and use cat and dog imaging technology like x-ray and ultrasound to get a better, fuller understanding of your pet’s health—and more importantly, their ailment. Give us a call today at (219) 865-3737.

What Our Diagnostics Can Do

At Dyer Animal Clinic, we have a full laboratory as well as digital x-ray (for both full-body and dental scans) and ultrasound. Each has a particular use in our diagnostic process, but we often use them all together. Laboratory work allows us to analyze your pet at the cellular level, while our imaging tools help us see organs, the abdomen, skeletal structure, and more.

Lab Work

It might sound a bit boring to those who didn’t love science class, but our laboratory is quite the technological wonder. With it, we have the ability to examine blood cells, skin cells, tissue cells, stool samples and more! This allows us to see chemical changes and abnormalities that may have no physical symptoms. In our lab, we perform:

  • Complete blood counts (CBCs)
  • Blood chemistry panels
  • Urinalysis
  • Fecal exams
  • Skin scrapings
  • Biopsies
  • And more!

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays are quick, painless, and emit much less radiation than their older film counterparts. In just a couple of moments, we can have a fully developed image of your pet’s internal structures. At Dyer Animal Clinic, we have both a full body x-ray and a dental x-ray that we use specifically during our dental procedures. Digital x-ray helps us diagnose:

  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Ingested foreign bodies
  • Bladder and kidney stones
  • Diseased organs
  • Gastrointestinal obstructions
  • And more!


As opposed to x-ray’s static picture, ultrasound gives us a live image of your pet’s organs and tissue. It works by emitting ultrasonic sound waves that bounce back from your pet’s internal structures. With it, we can diagnose:

  • Heart conditions
  • Diseased organs
  • Enlarged glands
  • Bladder and kidney stones
  • Abdominal issues
  • And more!
