The three cubs were born on a hill of the Senna Village. Their mother was attacked by another panther and died due to fatal injuries.
Udaipur forest officials rescued the cubs and brought them to Jodhpur and Dr Rathore became their caregiver.
He feeds the cubs every four hours and puts them to sleep on his chest, he plays with them in the sun for an hour daily and gives them medicines to increase their immunity.
Dr Rathore tried to feed them when they rescued and brought to him, they were hungry for four days.
“It was important to save their lives, so my wife suggested and I place them on my chest and cuddle them. The idea was they will hear my heartbeat, feel relaxed and take milk. The idea worked,” the vet shares.
