Meet JoJo! She is a potbellied pig that suffered a ruptured disc, and thanks to veterinarians at the Ohio State Veterinary Medical Center (VMC), she is making a great recovery from surgery - and using a wheeled cart to get around. Her care started with Dr. Caroline Lodge, resident in Farm Animal Medicine, who provided emergency care when JoJo came to the VMC on a recent Sunday.
