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.

Severe Skin Problems

We provide urgent care for animals who are experiencing a severe allergic reaction.

Pet Bird Emergencies

Animal Emergencies In Waldorf : Pet Bird Emergencies

Identifying Pet Bird Emergencies In Waldorf, MD

Pet bird emergencies are not always easy to distinguish from a less urgent bird injury or mild illness, unless of course the bird has actually collapsed. Here are some bird emergency symptoms that you can watch out for so you’ll know when to seek avian emergency care at our clinic.

  • Bird injury – Inability or unwillingness to stand, broken bones, lacerations with uncontrolled bleeding, eye damage or a traumatic event such as flying into window glass
  • Cardiopulmonary crises – Noisy or difficult breathing, odd sounds made during breathing, undetectable heartbeat
  • Environmental pet bird emergency – Exposure to airborne chemicals, toxin ingestion, electric shock, panting due to heat stroke, hypothermia, visible burns
  • Acute diseases – Sneezing fits, watery eyes or nose, skin lesions, pest infestation, change in skin of toe color, dirty or unkempt feathers, pain weakness and listlessness
  • Digestive pet bird emergencies – Vomiting, noticeable change in weight (up or down), debris around the mouth, changes in the appearance or smell of droppings or changes in eating habits
  • Neuromuscular emergencies – Loss of function in a leg or wing, balance problems, holding the head at a tilted angle, sluggishness, depression, sudden loss of consciousness, violent spasms (which could be seizures) or strangely rapid eye movements
  • Sensory problems – An apparent, unaccountable loss of eyesight or hearing
  • Internal disorders – Crop burns caused by ingesting hot foods or water, unusual difficulty laying an egg, inability to urinate or defecate, foreign body ingestion or choking on a foreign body

The trouble signs listed above may be caused by a variety of serious threats, some of which may be hidden from immediate view. For instance:

  • Nerve problems and seizures can be caused by heavy metals in the water.
  • The same trauma that produced skin lacerations may also have caused an undetected internal injury.
  • Binding (difficult egg laying) may have also caused internal bleeding
  • A foot or beak injury can cause weight loss because the bird can no longer feed himself efficiently.

Since some bird emergency symptoms may point to other, unseen emergencies, you can’t really know just how much trouble your pet is in until you seek avian emergency care.
