SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) — An Upper Peninsula veterinarian has lost her appeal over discipline by state regulators in the care of a dog.
Cynthia Sue Anderson was assessed a $1,000 fine last year and placed on probation for two years. The case centered on the care of Laya, a dog that was euthanized after developing post-surgery problems in 2008.
The Michigan appeals court upheld the sanctions this week, saying there was support for a disciplinary panel's findings of fact. Anderson denied wrongdoing. Her clinic is in Sault Ste. Marie.
She referred a request for comment to her attorney.
