Pain tolerance... I know nothing of the pain tolerance of modern Danes...

I do know I can lay my currs or bulldogs on the tailgate and shave the wounds (7 inch gash through skin and muscle to exposed gut is easily possible) and suture the muscle and staple the skin and they usually don't even bother lifting their head... No pain killer of any type is ever used...

I have had some currs who did require a soothing hand petting them to keep them calm thru the procedure however... Junior has become quite the efficient emergency vet tech in the field.
