At one time, veterinarians were taught animals felt pain differently from people. Fortunately we now know that your furry family members feel pain in much the same way people do. Understanding this fact, Dr. John and Dr. Angela Bentley use pain preventative medications in all of the surgeries performed at Bel Air Animal Hospital.
Pain management medications are medically appropriate in many aspects of veterinary medicine. Conditions including trauma, surgical procedures and long-term painful conditions such as osteoarthritis and cancer often warrant medication to keep pets comfortable. If your pet is facing a painful condition or surgery in the Mobile area, contact Bel Air Animal Hospital and allow our compassionate veterinarians to evaluate your pet to keep them as comfortable as possible.
