Question by irishcat68: Is it okay to put A&D ointment on a parakeets eyelid?
I have a baby Bourke’s Parakeet.She was shipped to me two days ago and seemed fine. Now one of her eyelids is not opening well. Can I use A&D ointment or is there an ointment I can buy at a good Pet Store? Any recommendations?

I wouldn’t put any oily substance on the birds eyelid unless directed by an avian vet. If there is a discharge in the eye it could be an infection . It could also be an injury. The best way to find out is for an avian vet visit. Good idea anyhow when you get a new bird. Don’t rely on home remedies unless you know what you are doing.
