FAIRBANKS, Alaska -- A veterinarian who practiced across rural Alaska has renounced his license while under investigation for allegations of negligence.
Dr. Eric Jayne was described by friends as one of the few veterinarians willing to work in the Alaska Bush. Popular but controversial, Jayne surrendered his license to the Alaska veterinary board earlier this month.
Documents filed by an investigator with the Alaska Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing showed that Jayne was under investigation for multiple allegations of negligence, prescriptive practice and standards of care.
