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.

5 Most Common Pet Emergencies

Heat Stroke

If your pet has been outdoors for a while or was left in a warm car, watch for symptoms like a red tongue, pale gums, and overall weakness. These are all signs of heat stroke, which can be fatal if not treated promptly.


Even seemingly healthy pets can have a seizure at any time, with reasons ranging from an underlying medical condition to environmental factors. If your pet has a seizure, remain calm and bring your pet into our emergency vet right away.


Ingestion of toxins, such as chocolate or even chemicals like antifreeze, can be fatal. If your pet has ingested a toxin or if your pet is displaying signs such as vomiting, lethargy, and weakness, be sure to seek emergency care as soon as possible.

Bite Injuries

Bites from other animals or even from insects can be fatal in some conditions. For example, some pets will have allergic reactions to insect or other bites, and in other cases, bites from other animals can become infected. If your pet has been bitten and is showing signs of infection or inflammation, bring them in to see a vet promptly.


Choking is one of a few pet emergencies where you may need to take action, as you may not have time to get to the vet. Try to open your pet’s mouth and look for foreign objects. If you can see anything, pull on your pet’s tongue to see if this dislodges the object. If not, you may need to (carefully) reach your finger in to dislodge the object and perform CPR.
