This news item is about: A year after a devastating illness brought reindeer Little Buddy to the Cornell University Equine and Nemo Farm Animal Hospital, the young reindeer is now back to full health and already embracing the holiday season. In November 2017, Little Buddy was diagnosed with Babesiosis, a potentially fatal parasitic disease spread by ticks. His brother Moose traveled with him to Cornell, where Moose provided blood for a transfusion that saved Little Buddy's life, and offered companionship to his brother who was stressed without him.
