Proventriculitis could be the causes virus eg. Reo adeno, IBD, IB virus. could be bacterial origin eg.
clostridium or other causes as biogenic amines,copper sulfate toxicity and mycotoxicosis.

There have been recent issues with proventriculitis due to sodium bicarbonate contaminated with flouride.

Might be due to adenoviral and or Reoviral involvement if you are getting similar findings in all other birds

Hi everybody, in this case I see enlarged of proventriculus with feed and shrunked gizzards which are empty. May I ask firstly, do you make fasting program, and do you use fine feed or bad pellet quality ? If both no, we can focus other factors such as mycotoxine and especially Adeno virus.

Mash feed could enhance in older age of broilers proventriculitis by indirect ways as stasis of feeds could increase Hcl

There are probably several factors.
2 main culprits:
1) infectiuous "proventriculitis" caused by a mix of more or less identifieed virus and bacteria
2) good pellet quality made of very fine mash. That means high feed intake but very poor control of the feed flow in the upper gut and no development of the gizzard muscle. This has probably an effect on the dilatation isthm section.
This factor is easier to fix than preventing early chick contamination, especially in deep litter production systems.

Hi Guys,

Anybody else has experienced biogenic amines causing proventriculus to become flaccid or enlarged?

There is also a similar Proventricular Dialation disease caused by Avian Bornavirus? How is the Biosecurity of the sheds?
