Jeannine Miesle has gained practical avian experience over the years caring for birds she has adopted and rescued. Many of these birds have been extremely ill and in horrific condition, but with the guidance of her avian veterinarian, Dr. Bob Dahlhausen, she was able to restore them to their best possible state of health.
Her interest in avian research originated eight years ago when her cockatoo was diagnosed with avian bornavirus (ABV) infection (proventricular dilatation disease or PDD). Since then, she has studied avian health and disease and authored articles for “Beauty of Birds” website. She is a Certified Avian Specialist from the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council and has completed The Fundamentals of Aviculture courses, Levels 1 and 2, from the American Federation of Aviculture. She is also an allied professional member of the Association of Avian Veterinarians. Jeannine holds a Master’s degree in English and has written, proofread, and edited for several journals and newsletters. She lectures on avian heal and disease, specifically ABV/PDD and “Nutritional Requirements of Psittacines,” in the Greater Cincinnati area.”
