September 10 Dr. Kristin Sinclair - Proventricular Dilatation Disease (PDD) and bornavirus - what we know and don't know about this devastating disease.
Dr. Kristin Sinclair will be back for our Sept meeting to talk about proventricular dilatation disease (PDD) and bornavirus - what we know and don't know about this devastating disease. We've had several households affected by PDD over the years and it's fairly common, so we are excited to have an update about this confusing disease. What's the relationship with testing? How do you know if your bird has it? How long does your house have to stay quarantined? Find this out and more on Sept 10!

Dr. Sinclair, a New Hampshire native, received her veterinary degree from the University of Tennessee in 2005. She then completed a small animal rotating internship at Garden State Veterinary Specialists in 2006, and an avian and exotics internship at the Broward Avian and Exotic Animal Hospital in 2007. She completed a residency in Companion Animal and Exotic Pet Medicine and Surgery at the University of California, Davis, in 2011 and became a board-certified specialist in avian medicine in 2012. She finally moved back to New England in 2011 and is very happy to be close to home! Dr Sinclair joined the KBAH team in 2013. Her interests include soft tissue surgery and small mammal medicine, particularly small rodents. She is owned by two rambunctious cat-beasts (Tessie and Cal), six rats (Percy, Dorian, Rudy, Lindsey, Norie & Piper), one mouse (Max) and two leopard geckos (Yuuko and Motoko) and a husband. In her spare time she enjoys reading, hiking, obstacle course racing, watching the Red Sox, and playing baseball/softball and soccer.
