Lake Oswego, OR 97035

Dr.Marli Lintner, DVM received her degree in Veterinary Medicine from Oregon State University in 1984. She continues to work with upcoming graduates of OSU through their shadowing program. She really enjoys teaching and it shows! Dr. Lintner opened Oregon's first avian exclusive veterinary practice in the late 1980's and has been working in veterinary medicine exclusively with birds for over 21 years. She has worked with parrots of almost every species, as well as poultry, ratites, raptors, waterfowl and other wild birds. Her Veterinary experience with birds is almost unparalleled in Oregon. She has a great 'bedside' manner for people as well as patients, and explains complicated concepts in easy to understand terms.

She has been an active member of the Association of Avian Veterinarians for over 21 years, and attends the AAV International conference regularly. Her presentation of the master level class entitled "The Diagnosis and Treatment of the Pet Chicken" at the 2006 Association of Avian Veterinarians conference in Texas was well received and very well attended at both sessions. A recipient of the Mamie Campbell Award, she has volunteered extensively with The Audubon Society of Portland since 1986. In addition to performing veterinary services courtesy, she served as a Board member for 8 years, and served as President for 2 years.

Dr. Lintner is also a member of the Oregon Emergency Response Team for Avian Disease. The team has been preparing for the potential outbreak of Avian Influenza, and Dr. Linter is involved in the action.

Along with her family, Dr. Lintner lives with a Severe Macaw, a small flock of chickens, a cat, and two ponies. They have added a new dog to the family just recently. Chile, a Slender Billed Conure, also Dr. Lintner's, resides at the Avian Medical Center clinic.
