Dear Aline: Look in any standard veterinary anatomy textbook to get what is known. You might start with Sisson and Grossmann's "Anatomy of the Domestic Animals" (modern editions are edited by Getty and may be listed with Getty as author).

Kainer and McCracken (or some editions are McCracken and Kainer) "The Coloring Atlas of Equine Anatomy" has some nice plates, which are fun because they're set up so you can color them and thus learn the routes that the vessels take.

In general, the lymph system is hard to demonstrate in gross dissection, because lymph vessels have very thin walls which either collapse and become practically invisible when the animal dies, or which burst open when attempts are made to inject them with latex as is normally done with the arterio-venous system. Thus, books such as the "Photographic Atlas of Equine Anatomy" have less information, simply because it's hard to take photographs of lymph vessels. Generally, however, lymph NODES aren't too difficult and you can find good images of those in the "Photographic Atlas" as well as in Sisson and Grossmann.

What are they telling you in the massage therapy course you're taking about the function and significance of the lymph system?

Good luck with your learning -- Dr. Deb
