I have to confess that I get an inordinate amount of pleasure from the memory of an especially bad vet wrinkling up his nose as he cleaned out one of my boars once (done by this vet's own choice and not mine, BTW...)

Neutering can help some males with that to some extent, but there's no guarantees and with some, it doesn't make any difference at all.
I think I was bitten only twice by my pigs. One time I was walking around looking for a nail clipper and I am SURE Nina read my mind and did NOT want her nails clipped! It was the only time she ever bit me.

Let me do some digging...awhile back I had looked into a product that was being used with arthritic rabbits, but the name escapes me at the moment.
