Abstract

Mother's milk is a potential contributing nutritional involved in safeguarding the cubs against ophthalmic disorders such as juvenile cataract as the cub in our study was hand reared using artificial milk formula and developed bilateral cataract. The affected cub was compared with other siblings that had been nursed by their dam naturally. The development of cataract was noticed after about forty five (45) days of hand rearing using artificial milk formula. Bilateral cataracts was noticed with no signs of vision. The bilateral cataract could be correlated with history to nutritonal deficiency.
