All-Day Avian Health Seminar At Bird Paradise In New Jersey

Avian vets and experts sound off on PDD, avian flu, West Nile, nutrition and more.

Bird Paradise, an avian-only store in Burlington, N.J., will host an avian health seminar June 10, 2006, in conjunction with the Avian Health Network. All proceeds from the public event will be donated to the Emerging Diseases Research Group at the University of Georgia (UGA) College of Veterinary Medicine. .

Branson Ritchie, DVM, Dip., ABVP – Avian Practice, of UGA, will present the latest findings on Proventricular Dilatation Disease (PDD) and West Nile virus. PDD is a lethal avian disease that puzzles researchers and avian veterinarians. There is no known cure or vaccine for it, and researchers don’t know what causes it. Dr. Ritchie’s research team’s work on PDD is well-known. They have been working on the disease for more than 25 years.

Cyndi Brown, DVM, of Red Bank Animal Hospital in N.J., will talk about latest avian flu updates. She’ll also cover the use of air purification systems and which are safe choices for bird owners. Fun foraging and recipe ideas will be explained by Monica and Carlos Gonzalez of Grey Feather Toys.

The event begins at 11 am and includes refreshments, snacks and giveaways. Tickets for the seminar are $35 each or $60 per couple. All proceeds go to PDD research. For more information or to order tickets, contact Kathie at (609) 747-7777 or visit Bird Paradise.
