Veterinarian who allegedly taped dog’s mouth during euthanasia is facing abuse charges

An Oregon veterinarian, who allegedly was caught taping closed the mouth of a dog who was being euthanized in early October, has been arrested and is facing animal abuse charges. As reported by Fox 43 News, Dr. Daniel Koller of the Companion Pet Clinic, in Beaverton, was arrested on Thursday following an investigation by the Oregon Humane Society and the Beaverton Police Department.

Koller is the veterinarian who shocked Allan Worman last month when his 14-year-old dog, Coco, was brought to the vet clinic to be put down. Worman alleged that Koller taped the elderly dog’s mouth shut and attempted to put the dog down away from her owner.

Another dog owner alleges that Koller attacked a customer’s seven-month-old dachshund Bleu. Blue’s owner, Jose Figueroa, claims that the doctor grabbed the puppy by the mouth and “squeezed hard.” Figueroa also alleges that Koller dangled the pup off of the exam table, causing Bleu to struggle breathing. Bleu died one day after the troubling veterinary appointment.

Koller was arrested and released – he is facing an aggravated animal cruelty charge and is due in court on November 26.

    Dr. Daniel Koller is a menace to society and how this has been allowed to go on for so long is beyond my comprehension. I hope these people get some justice for the heartbreak he has put them through. I would imagine these incidences are just the tip of the iceberg, who know what else this monster has done.

    This POS is the veterinarian from Hell who has violated the MOST important oath: “First do no harm” that all medical and veterinary practitioners take…… How can he justify his actions as “standard veterinarian practices” is beyond my comprehension……. He should be locked up for a very long time AND never allowed near animals again!!!

    This POS already has his reserved place in Hell waiting for him to return where he will burn forever for his cruelty.

    All the precious little treasures who were murdered by this POS, I know you are in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty and join his wonderful snuggle buddies group and RIP amongst loving friends.
