During tail docking the tails of newborn piglets are burnt off and by this the vessels close simultaneously.  Pathogens cannot penetrate when the vessels are sealed immediately.  Generally tails are docked to a length of 2-3 cm.  The reason for tail docking is to avoid cannibalism among pigs that might take place if tails remain long during rearing and fattening.
