  1. A group of normal rats (n = 5) was tested with the Electronic von Frey Anesthesiometer® daily from days 1 to 15 and then on days 18 and 25. The intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs) for values calculated for the entire evaluation period were compared to values calculated after exclusion of the first week and the first two weeks of assessment.
