The general behaviour of the fasciae lymphatics appears to be the exact same in the dog as in the cow. As in the cow, small lymph vessels that emerge from the lymphatic vascular networks for the most part travel on the surface of the fasciae and only penetrate through after a lengthy distance in order to continue on the inner surface of the fasciae. Occasionally, however, the lymph vessels that arise from the networks draining the injection site are already located under the fasciae, i.e. on its inner surface. I was able to demonstrate these lymph vessels in the antebrachial fascia, specifically. The lymph vessels of the antebrachial fascia, lumbodorsal fascia, fascia lata, and fascia cruris were all noted.
