Pet Hit by a Car in Waldorf

If your dog was hit by a car near Waldorf a variety of emotions likely rise to the surface, including panic and desperation to quickly get them the care they need. That means they need care from a Waldorf emergency veterinarian because chances are, every minute counts when you are trying to get them to the Waldorf animal hospital.

If your pet has a serious injury, there isn't a lot of time to think about whether or not your regular veterinarian's office is open, let alone if there is a qualified vet available to deal with your emergency. At Waldorf Emergency Care in Waldorf, MD we only treat animals that are in the midst of a medical crisis, and we are open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week where a qualified veterinarian is always available.

Why Waldorf Emergency Care is the Right Choice

We have veterinarians available 24 hours a day, including vets for pets other than dogs and cats, including reptiles, pocket pets, birds, and even goats and sheep. In order to receive the best possible care, contact us before you walk in the door with your pet or be ready to provide us with as much information as possible, including any signs of injury or bleeding you've already noticed, including breathing issues, and any existing medications your pet may be taking.

Reacting to a Pet Being Hit By a Car

When your pet is hit, they need to get safely out of the road as soon as possible and be transported to a Waldorf animal hospital. In many cases, this can be tricky. One of the first things you want to do is prepare a muzzle for your pet made from whatever is handy, such as a scarf, sock, or spare leash. Even the most gentle dog will bite when they are afraid and in pain.

Use objects such as blankets and towels to help keep your pet warm during transport and to provide a sling for potentially broken bones. Take advantage of the kindness of bystanders who can help you get your pet to see the Waldorf emergency veterinarian or at least help you get them safely out of the road.

Arriving at the Waldorf Animal Hospital

Getting to Waldorf Emergency Care with your injured pet after your dog was hit by a car near Waldorf can bring some relief, but the work is far from over. Whenever possible, call ahead and let us know whatever you can, and we'll see your pet right away and let you know what needs to happen in order to give your dog the care he needs. Once he is stabilized, we can work with his regular vet to assure that he continues to receive any follow-up treatment he needs, and we're always there to handle any unexpected setbacks, or for any other reason why you need an emergency vet.
