We’re there for all stages of your pet’s life.

From their first visit to see us and every visit after that, we’ll be there to provide ongoing care for your pet. You can expect to be greeted by a courteous receptionist, clean exam rooms, friendly doctors, and caring technicians. We appreciate the role we get to play in your pet’s health care.

When it comes to your pet’s care, we offer everything they need under one roof. We do it all—wellness exams to surgery and everything in between. Our app makes managing your pet’s care more convenient. We also now offer house calls for pets!

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 also helps practitioners throughout Connecticut, New York, and New England in oral fracture problems, oral cancer, root canals in broken teeth, and in tooth restorations with caps or crowns. He has developed a surgical protocol for treating the painful cat stomatitis patient.

We love our clients and patients.
