Abstract

The general appearance of the innervation of samples of skin from 10 young beagles was studied by using the pan-neuronal immunolabel PGP9.5, and quantitative data on the density of the nerve fibres was obtained. The data provide a baseline for the development of a diagnostic test for small fibre neuropathy in domestic dogs.
