Do cows have lymph nodes?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

This is sort of off of the subject, (chickens) but I was just wondering, and I couldnt find it anywhere on the web.
Do cows and pigs have a lymphatic system?
Thanks, L.M.L

Do you have any proof?
Or something that is actually a written down answer.
Thanks,

All mammals have lymphatic systems, its part of being a warm blooded animal. The lymphatic system is a integral part of the immune system.

Fish and other cold blood creatures have something similar in use, but its usually termed as lymphoid tissue. Higher vertebrates have lymphatic systems, its seen as a higher evolutionary level than non-systemic creatures. But we're getting into taxonomy here, so I'll stop.
