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.

Symptoms of heatstroke include excessive panting, drooling, reddened gums, vomiting, diarrhea, confusion, and loss of consciousness.
