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.

Protecting your cat from poisonous plants during the Holidays

Poisonous Plants Could Cause A Trip To The Animal Hospital For Emergency Pet Care

The holiday season means bringing in popular plants into the home. However, not all of them are safe for cats and may result in an emergency trip to an animal hospital for urgent care. The best ways to prevent your cats from falling ill is to keep these plants away from them, buy artificial ones, or not purchase the plants at all. Here are some holiday plants you need to know provided by our vets at Waldorf Emergency Care

Lilies, Amaryllis, and Narcissus

Lilies, amaryllis, narcissus, and others like them in the lily family are very toxic to cats. These plants can cause cardiac arrhythmias, kidney failure, gastrointestinal distress, and even death.

Mistletoe and Holly

Mistletoe and Holly are fun to hang around the house with their intense green color and red and white berries. But if you must kiss under the mistletoe, or want to spruce up the home, use an artificial one to protect your pet. These two plants are moderate to severely toxic to cats.

Poinsettia Plants

The sap of poinsettia plants can irritate the stomach and intestines if your cat manages to eat it. Keep poinsettia out of reach or out of the house.

Christmas Trees

The oils in the needles of live trees have mild toxicity. However, the biggest concern is when the needles puncture the gastrointestinal tract of your pet. Vaccum the needles up to prevent ingestion and irritation.
