Re: Very little water in eyes!

So far... it could still be *anything* - even something as silly a congenital narrow tearducts. So just keep an eye on her/him.


Right now I will even go with "very emotional parrot"


Just great he/she (sorry I forget) is not showing any other symptoms that suggest disease.
You have all the time to play detective.

Re: Very little water in eyes!

May I ask, which part of India do you live in? Are you in a big city with lots of air pollution? Lots of pollutants and particles in the air irritate the eyes and lungs of people, let alone a parrot.

Re: Very little water in eyes!

No No! Delhi, Noida, Gurugram have lots of pollution which is indeed deadly to everyone, in winters situation becomes very critical! But I live in an area near Bulandshahr, and my area has really good pollution levels, my home is surrounded my lots of greenery and we have very less traffic and construction sites, so I really don't think pollution maybe a reason! Though it's not a sanctuary... But many birds love this place :-)

What's your opinion about this issue? What you think is causing this...

Re: Very little water in eyes!

Well I’m not a vet. I’ve had a cockatiel that looked a lot like yours, the white cockatiels have can have red eyes naturally, but your bird’s eyes do look irritated to me. You might try a daily misting with clean water from a spray bottle. Don’t squirt water directly at her face, rather point the nozzle upwards so the water falls gently on her like a natural rain shower. That may help ease the irritation. But I would still recommend that you seek professional help for her because we can only speculate from this distance!

Re: Very little water in eyes!

Vets are a big problem here! There's a greattt lack of "good vets" and avian vets (not at all) :-( Though I know some good ones and one of them will be there for shine on Wed or Thurs For today, Should I try applying rosewater (many people recommend it, though I have never tried) or something like salt eye wash?

Re: Very little water in eyes!

I suggest you just keep it simple with clean fresh water until you can get her to see a professional, which I am not

Re: Very little water in eyes!

Thanks for the pictures, she is a beauty! Hard to know the cause, but I would seek an avian vet for peace of mind. Many homeopathic remedies are terrific, but I'd still check with a vet to be absolutely sure!
