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.

Common Cat Diseases Treated by our Waldorf Veterinarian

Common Cat Diseases

Most cat diseases are preventable with feline vaccinations beginning when a cat is around six or seven weeks old. Vaccinations for rabies, feline distemper, feline herpesvirus, feline calicivirus, feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus are available and should be given to both indoor and outdoor cats. For other diseases, your emergency veterinarian in Waldorf offers treatment 24 hours a day, seven days week.

Feline Urinary Tract Disease

Cats with bloody urine that urinate too frequently or struggle to urinate may have an inflamed bladder and/or urinary tract disease. Veterinarians think bacteria or interstitial cystitis (bladder infection) may cause feline urinary tract disease. In addition, the stress involved with moving or adding another cat to your household may interfere with your cat’s immune system functioning and make it easier for a virus to infect the urinary tract.

Treatment for feline urinary tract disease includes your emergency vet prescribing antibiotics and recommending you feed your cat smaller meals throughout the day. Making sure your cat drinks plenty of water will also help flush out an infected urinary tract.

Feline Upper Respiratory Infections

When cats are ill with a contagious, upper respiratory infection called chlamydiosis , they have runny noses, eye discharge, loss of appetite, cough and sneeze frequently. Diagnosis of chlamydiosis involves your Waldorf veterinarian testing samples of your cat’s eye discharge. If pneumonia bacteria are present in the sample, your vet may want to take x-rays of your cat’s lungs to determine the severity of the infection. Cats with chlamydiosis and other respiratory infections are given antibiotics and supportive care.

Feline Ear Infections

Symptoms of ear infections in cats include head shaking, pawing at ears, vomiting and a smelly discharge seeping from the infected ear. Ears may also be red and swollen, depending on how much your cat paws and scratches the affected ear. To treat ear infections in cats, your emergency vet will prescribe antibiotics to eliminate bacteria causing the infection.
