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.

The Importance of an Annual Pet Exam

The Importance of an Annual Pet Exam

The veterinarians at Waldorf Emergency Care know how important your pet’s well-being is to your family. We are dedicated to making sure your pet lives a long and healthy life. One of the best ways to provide a healthy life is with annual pet exams which are used to monitor any health conditions and prevent new ones from forming.

Annual Exams Identify Issues Before They Cause Pain

Many pet owners assume that just because a pet is acting normally that there is nothing wrong. However, many health issues can cause pets no discomfort. An annual pet exam will help uncover any potential problems and we will be able to provide prompt care. Also, some diseases can only be detected by blood and urinalysis that will be done at your pet’s annual exam.

Staying up to Date on Vaccinations

As most pet owners know, a trip to the vet can be a stressful experience for your pet. We can make sure to give any needed vaccinations during the exam thus reducing the need for return trips to the vet.

Heartworm Testing for Dogs

Heartworms can be fatal to dogs, so it is critical to get your dog tested annually. Not only will our veterinarian check your dog for heartworms at the annual exam, but we will also renew your yearly prescription for the prevention medication of heartworms.

Prevent Obesity in Pets 

As pet owners, it is often not easy to see if your pet has gained a few pounds. Unfortunately for pets, even a few extra pounds can push the pet into the obesity category and increase the risk of issues like heart disease. An annual checkup will help ensure your pet is maintaining a healthy weight. Our vet can recommend a diet plan if your pet does gain weight.

Preventive Medicine Helps Avoid Urgent Care

Just as with human health care, annual exams help keep pets healthy. Pets who receive annual exams are much less likely to end up at the animal hospital for emergency pet care. If you are interested in setting up an appointment for an annual exam, reach out to the veterinarians at Waldorf Emergency Care today by calling (301) 705-9700.
