Diagnostic and Imaging Services

Sometimes the issues plaguing our pets aren’t obvious in a physical examination. When these cases arise, the team at Hanover Veterinary Hospital can utilize state-of-the-art technology in our in-house laboratory to provide a more detailed diagnosis.


Our Cedar Lake hospital offers X-ray and ultrasound technology. These devices allow our doctors to get a better look at what’s going inside your pet’s body.

Pet Diagnostics in Cedar Lake

In-House Diagnostic Lab

When your pet is sick, we know you want to know what’s wrong as soon as possible. While we do partner with an outside diagnostics laboratory for complex cases, those results take about 24 hours to process. Our in-house diagnostics lab allows us to run some of the most common blood and parasite testing needed and receive results for you within one hour.

Tests we can quickly process include:

  • Blood work including complete blood cell (CBC) count and comprehensive chemistries
  • Heartworm, FeLV/FIV
  • Fecal, parvo and giardia
  • Urinalysis
  • Thyroid testing

The ability to run these tests in our laboratory is a great advantage to our team in emergencies and when quick results are needed.

We came in as a walk in. Scooby had an ear infection and his eye had swelled up. Hanover treated him as if he was a long time patient. His eye was back to normal the next day. We are still treating the ear infection. But he's back to his old self. Thank you for such great care. -Timothy M.
