Anatomy question, can someone help?

I was talking to a vet today, and he said that the only two organs that don't feel pain were the liver and the brain. I'm already aware that the brain does not, but I wasn't aware that this was the case with the liver. He said that there were no pain receptors in the liver due to the acidic conditions. This doesn't make sense to me because the stomach is also acidic. I've looked on google just now, and I haven't been able to find clear answers, they are mostly differing opinions. Can someon please clear this up for me? Which organs do not have pain receptors?

  • The stomach is acidic but the lining does have pain receptors that are not bothered by the acid in the stomach. The liver gets a lot of nerve signals, but doesn't have any pain receptors at all.
    Hope this helped!
