Waldorf Emergency Care Treats Many Pet Conditions

Pets can experience injuries and illnesses that may be sudden or life-threatening. Emergency veterinary care provides the immediate, on-the-spot treatment to save lives and restore animals to health. At Waldorf Emergency Care in Waldorf, MD, we have the knowledge and experience in treating a range of conditions.

Bone Fractures

Your emergency vet in Waldorf will carefully X-ray the injury and set the bone so that it can heal properly. For severe bone fractures, surgery may be necessary.

Respiratory Distress

Animals may experience breathing difficulties, choking, or respiratory infections that can affect their lung function. Our experienced team can help with medications, oxygen therapy, or surgery to improve breathing.

Ingestion of Poisons

If your pet is experiencing vomiting, confusion, or seizures, and you suspect he or she may have ingested a poisonous substance, get your animal to our emergency care clinic immediately for life-saving treatment.

Bite Wounds and Bleeding

A fight with another animal can result in bleeding or wounds that may require stitches or medications to help prevent infection. Similarly, accidents that cause lacerations should receive emergency pet care treatment from our veterinary clinic.

Severe Vomiting or Diarrhea

A severe bout of vomiting or diarrhea can be caused by eating tainted food, ingesting a toxic substance, or intestinal infection. Your veterinarian can help to determine the cause of your pet’s symptoms and administer the right treatment.


Heatstroke occurs when animals are exposed to extreme high temperatures and are not able to cool down. Symptoms of heatstroke include excessive panting, drooling, reddened gums, vomiting, diarrhea, confusion, and loss of consciousness. Heatstroke is an emergency that requires immediate veterinary care.


If your pet becomes unconscious, due to heatstroke, an accident, or any sudden illness, take him or her to see our veterinarians immediately for diagnosis and proper treatment.

4th Of July: Creating A Successful Pet Holiday

The 4th of July is almost here! While this is an exciting holiday for us humans, it can be confusing, or even downright scary, for our furry family members. At Waldorf Emergency Care, our veterinarian wants you to know how to keep your pet safe amidst the BBQs and fireworks of Independence Day.

Pet Ideas For 4th Of July Safety

Follow these tips to keep your dog, cat, or small animal safe during the 4th of July festivities:

  • If at all possible, keep your animal inside. Fireworks, grills, and people driving after drinking are all extremely hazardous to animals.
  • If you choose to take your pet outside, be sure to keep them on a leash. Even if your pet typically would never stray from the yard, fireworks can be disorienting, and it’s easy for pets to wander off and not be able to find their way back home.
  • Don’t feed your pet party food, no matter how tempting it may be (and don’t allow your guests to do so either). Feel free to whip up some tummy-friendly dog or cat treats if you’d like your pet to have a little something special for the holiday. Chicken or beef cooked on the grill and cooled is usually a safe snack for pets as well.
  • Make sure your pet’s microchip information is up to date. If your pet needs a microchip, don’t delay. If your pet already has one, call the microchip company and make sure that the have your current address and phone number on file. If your pet gets spooked by fireworks and is lost, it’s important that the shelter that finds your pet is able to contact you easily using the information stored by the microchip company.
