AU 2017 Convention


This year, our focus is on domestic sport concerns.  

We are pleased to present:


Dr. Roger W. Harlin, DVM

Dr. Harlin received his DVM degree from Oklahoma State University in 1976. He has been in small animal practice at Southside Dog, Cat, and Bird Clinic for most of his career. He is the senior practitioner and his primary responsibilities are surgeries, avian, and exotic medicine. 

He is a Master Breeder of American Giant Runt pigeons and flies with the P.R.O. club of Oklahoma City.

Dr. Harlin has worked closely with the U.S.D.A. and various national and state veterinarian associations.  His network of contacts benefits the sport and your right to fly.

An in-demand speaker because of his wealth of bird health knowledge, he will be a "don't miss" guest!

​Dr. Paul G Miller, DVM

Dr. Miller holds a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine and has the following expertise:

He is a consultant for Pigeon Vaccine Laboratory.  He developed the autogenous Salmonella vaccine and is currently working on additional pigeon vaccines including providing product support to clients.
