Traumatic neuroma development in tail docked piglets is not associated with long-term changes in spinal nociceptive processing
MetadataShow full item record
Concerns exist over the long term consequences for tail stump pain experienced by piglets after docking, especially in relation to traumatic neuroma development in caudal nerves after docking injury. Neuroma formation may cause detrimental sensory changes in the tail due to altered axonal excitability leading to abnormal sensation or pain.
