Today I am writing a page on Infectious Bird Diseases and linking it to some other pages already posted on this website as well as some other websites that I have built. Infectious Bird Diseases are often classified as viral bird diseases, bacterial bird diseases, fungal bird diseases, protozoal bird diseases and parasitic bird diseases.
Dr Ross Perry is a man of many interests, many talents, many adventures, and much more, yet he is perhaps best known as The Bird Vet, the first bird specialist to be registered by the state Governments of Australia after examination by an international panel of judges in the subject of Caged and Aviary Bird Health. He is also internationally known among other bird vets for discovering desribing and naming Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD) and Psittacine Pruritic Pollyfolliculosis (PPPF) etc. He has been described as the Grandfather of bird vets in Australia.
