This news item is about: Visitors to Cornell’s Nemo Farm Animal Hospital may not think twice about the name—chances are, they’re preoccupied with their own animals that are there receiving care. But the hospital’s namesake has a very special story, one that made headlines around the globe and charted new insight into treatments for large animals. The name comes from Nemo, a black and white Hampshire pig brought to Cornell, where veterinarians diagnosed him with B-cell lymphoma. Cornell clinicians had treated dogs and cats with this cancer, but this was their first experience dealing with the disease in a 730-lb swine.
