U.S. DEA Agrees With Activists' Conclusion, Rules Against Koller

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has investigated and determined that, because of his actions, Koller may no longer order or dispense controlled substances.
U.S. DEA Agrees With Activists' Conclusion, Rules Against Koller

Recently, activists demonstrated outside the office of veterinarian Daniel Koller, at Pet Companion Clinic on 82nd Ave. They drew attention to the number of abuse complaints filed against him in both Oregon and California. These accounts are horrific. Koller has had his veterinary license revoked in California but, as Koller is also a lawyer, he was able to sue the California Veterinary Board and his license was reinstated. So far the Oregon Veterinary Board has refused to take action against him. (Search portland indymedia for more info.)

Of lesser but related concern is Koller's abuse of veterinary medicine. In 2001 Koller's daughter phoned 911 because both Koller and his wife had overdosed on Telezol, a veterinary anesthetic. Drug use aside, Koller is obviously incapable of functioning as a responsible veterinarian.

Koller's colleagues claim these allegations are inaccurate. However, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has investigated and determined that, because of his actions, Koller may no longer order or dispense controlled substances. Their detailed investigation and his arrogant responses to their questions are reported in full at  http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/fed_regs/actions/2006/fr1117.htm

Activist claims have been drawn from legal documents, and we are thrilled that the U.S. DEA has finally determined Koller cannot be trusted with controlled substances. Our only hope now is that the Oregon Veterinary Board will someday determine that Koller cannot be with animals either.

ya think

these county and state agencies are "NOT" there to help anyone.............NO. they are there to make money for the elected officials. They had to be blasted in the face with this "Kohler" thing in order for them to deni his license again. (It shouldn't be up to the community to now whats going on. it should be the elected officials being up to date and knowing what is going on!!!!!!!!!) All the agencies are like that. They could care less about anything other than getting paid............. Been there done that.
