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 Surgery Coming Up? Get The Info You Need

Pet Surgery

If your pet is having surgery, it’s important that you talk with the veterinarian performing the procedure before the appointment date. At Waldorf Emergency Care, we strive to ensure that every pet parent is well informed regarding their pet’s surgical procedure.

Talk With Your Vet

When you’re talking with your veterinarian about your pet’s upcoming procedure, you want to know what to expect. Your vet may have pre-surgery instructions for you to follow with your pet. These instructions may include giving your pet medicine prior to surgery, or ensuring that your pet does not eat or drink before the procedure. You’ll also want to talk with the vet about how long the procedure is likely to take. As a concerned pet owner, it’s normal to be worried during your pet’s operation, and it helps to know when you can expect the veterinarian to call with an update about the surgery.

You’ll also want to go over your pets aftercare instructions. Depending on the procedure, your pet may be sent home with pain medication to help them ease through their recovery. Talk with your vet about the dosage and frequency with which you are to administer the medication. You’ll want to discuss behavior changes that are normal for a pet that underwent the procedure, so you know what is and is not cause for alarm. It’s also important to talk with your vet about what to do in case of an emergency. Your vet will provide you with an after hours number or the phone number of an emergency hospital (if their animal hospital is not 24 hours) in the case that your pet experiences complications and requires urgent care.
