    Is NS IV solution safe alternative to water for cockteils ?

    Doc suggested to use NS solution for clearing the area around the eyes for one of my bird who is blind in one eye... However now all my birds love that and are refusing to drink plain water nd they keep asking for the NS solution everyday else they refuse to drink water .... Is this safe to give this NS solution to birds ??

    Personally, I feel that fresh water, or bottled pure water is best for all birds. I do not think there is any treatments that reverse blindness. However, there may be some of which I have no knowledge.

    My budgie, Muffin is nine years old, and he became blind about two years ago. I did some research on line, which directed to keep everything inside the cage, such as mirrors, perches, food and water, and toys, in the same places as before the blindness set in. I have continued to do so, and my Muffin is able to navigate his cage as usual, sings, chirps, and even plays with his mirror girlfriends!
