Perma-Play Products offers 100% endorsement to the PDD (Proventricular Dilation Disease) Research being conducted by the Psittacine Disease Research Group at the University of Georgia. Doctors there have made tremendous strides and believe they may have isolated the virus that causes this deadly disease.
Tests are now being developed in hopes of finding a vaccine since PDD is fatal, affects over 50 species of psittacines, and strikes birds of all ages.
The National Campaign to Eradicate PDD is a nationwide effort to raise the funds needed to continue this important research. Your tax deductible donations can make a difference. For more information, please refer to the PDD Information Page.
