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.

Cold Weather Tips for Pets

Keeping Pets Safe in Cold Weather

During the coldest months of the year, it is essential to keep your pets safe. If not cared for properly, the low temperatures may bring harm to your pet. At Waldorf Emergency Care, we want your pets to be warm and comfortable all winter long. Here are some tips from our Waldorf veterinarians on how to help your pets during the winter.

Cold Weather Tips for Pet Owners

Keep your pet’s paws clean and dry. They can collect mud and snow, which can lead to frostbite or worsen conditions like arthritis. Keep a dry towel handy by the door so you can help your pet wipe down when it comes indoors.

Avoid Grooming. Winter is not the time to have your pet groomed. Keeping your pet’s fur long gives them an added layer of protection against the cold. For pets that have naturally short fur, we recommend he or she wears a sweater or coat when they go out.

Keep your pets indoors whenever possible. Some dog and cat breeds don’t mind the cold and are built for the weather. Others are very sensitive to low temperatures. Get to know your pet’s limits, and don’t subject it to any colder weather than he or she can take. If your pet needs to get exercise, do some more playing inside to keep them active in lieu of a walk.

Skip the baths for now. Moisture collecting in the fur can take hours to dry out and can freeze when your pet steps outside to relieve itself, even for a few minutes.

Don’t let your animals wander off. In the snow, the scents that pets use to find their way home are more difficult to track.
