    General Services

    Our goal is to provide high-quality, complete veterinary care at SSV as we create a “home away from home” environment with loving nurses and assistants! Patients in the hospital will be comforted with blankets, fleeces, towels, and comfortable accommodations.

    Urgent Care
    The Silver Sands Veterinary team is experienced in treating minor emergencies and promptly treat minor medical conditions before they become life-threatening. Life-threatening emergencies should always be directed to the ER.
    Laser Therapy
    The Silver Sands Veterinary Physical Therapy and Rehab Department features low-level laser therapy (photobiomodulation) coupled with pharmaceuticals, exercise programs, and weight management.

    Untreated periodontal disease is cyclic and permanent. The early form of periodontal disease gingivitis is completely reversible. Periodontitis, advanced periodontal disease, is treatable and controllable but not reversible. That is why patients must be treated early! Once pathology is seated, it is much more difficult to treat and more costly to control.

    Get to know Dr. DeForge and the team!

    Dr. DeForge is the only Fellow of the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry in Milford. He performs dental cleanings that are affordable, with dental X-ray diagnostics in the same manner as a human dentist!

He has developed a surgical protocol for treating the painful cat stomatitis patient.

    Pet Insurance
