Calcium sandoz safe?

I was googling calcium sources last night when I came across these links conveying that calcium sandoz syrup can be used for cats dogs and birds.
There were a lot of links on that. .
Isn't it used for humans? ?
Is it safe for birds?

Personally I wouldn't use it. There are calcium supplements like cuttle bone, mineral blocks designed for birds. They will eat only when they know they need it.

Actually, cuttle bone and mineral blocks don't do anything unless the bird has vit D3 which can only be created by their bodies if they have direct exposure to sunlight (meaning not through a glass but straight from the sun to their bodies). No vitamin D3 = calcium going right through without the body absorbing any of it. That's why they need something like Calciboost or Calcivet (liquid calcium + vit D 3) unless vit D3 is provided through another source.

Macalvit.
He told me the dosage as well.
Do you think its good to offer. . It has d3 and cal

Is it liquid or in tablets? I find it easier to use the liquid form.
