Proventricular Dilatation Disease (PDD) is known by many names, including Macaw Wasting Disease and Neuropathic Gastric Dilatation. Considered to be caused by avian bornavirus, PDD is contagious and can result in high mortality. Diagnosis is difficult, often requiring a combination of multiple diagnostic tests and the clinical experience of your avian veterinarian.

We recommend you visit your avian veterinary before and after performing the test to properly diagnose your bird’s health condition.
