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.

Foxtails & Spring Hazards

Foxtails & Spring Hazards

When winter comes to an end and you no longer need to worry about your pet getting lost in the snow or getting frostbite, your worries are not over. Springtime has a whole new set of things that you need to worry about when it comes to your pet, and you need to know what to look out for. If something does happen and your pet is injured or gets sick, our veterinary professionals at Waldorf Emergency Care are here to give your pet the spring hazard treatment that they need.

Thawing Bodies of Water

If you have a stream, pond, or another body of water near your home, it can be hazardous during the springtime. If your pet walks across the ice as it is beginning to thaw, they can fall in and drown. If possible, you should keep your pet indoors until the snow and ice have melted.


During the spring, ticks are everywhere. If your pet is bitten by a tick with Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, or any other tick-borne disease, your pet can become very ill. During the spring, you should be especially vigilant about applying your pet’s flea and tick preventative treatment.


Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes, and the mosquito population greatly increases during the spring. Heartworm can cause issues with your pet’s kidneys, liver, eyes, and central nervous system. Heartworms can also cause death. Because of this, it is essential your pet receives their heartworm prevention medication on time.


Foxtails are round plants that are covered in barbs. If your pet is running in the woods and gets foxtails in their fur, it can be very painful. Not only is removing the foxtail difficult and painful, but your pet can get an infection from the wound. If possible, you should cut away all the foxtails to keep your pet safe.


Many homeowners use fertilizer during the spring to help their grass grow green and lush. Many fertilizers on the market today contain toxic substances that can make your pet very sick. If you are using fertilizer in your yard, it is best to keep your pet indoors for a while.
