I want to Thank-you for posting about our tragedy with Dr. Nolte and our Sweet Diva. Its been a long fight..dealing with Dr. Nolte's lies. But the end result we won our battle. Today we received a letter from the Maryland State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners. Enclosed with the letter is the court findings. Dr. Death was found Guilty. the order stats that #1 Dr. Nolte is assessed a civil penalty in the amount of five hundred dollars , #2 Dr.Nolte's Veterinarian license is suspended for two weeks-one week of which is stayed; #3 Dr. Nolte will complete 6 hours in continuing education in surgical technique, as approved by the board and #4 Dr Nolte will serve a period of probation of one year from the date of this order .. November 23rd 2009. (Dr.Nolte is charged and the board ultimately concludes that Dr.Nolte was in violation of the Maryland Veterinary Practices Act during the period of probation) will result in the stay being lifted , and Dr. Nolte will have to serve the remaining one week suspension for the charges resolved here.
Although this seems like a small price he has to pay for the loss of our Diva and for the memories that my kids witnessed on that horrible day..I feel like its better than nothing. If It wasn't for you Joe..we wouldn't have been able to file a complaint. It was you who got us in contact with Staci Sakai and with yours & Staci's help we got some comfort in knowing he didn't get away with what he did and how he treated our Diva. So Thank-you Joe!
