Langley vet charged with sex crimes

Clayton Animal hospital vet charged with sexual assault and indecent exposure

A Langley veterinarian has been charged with sex crimes.

Dr. Wayne Etherington, who worked at Clayton Animal Hospital, has been charged with two counts of sexual assault and one count of indecent exposure, confirm Langley RCMP. He makes his next court appearance on May 3.

Prior to these recent criminal charges against him, the College of Veterinarians of B.C. had obtained a court order to stop the Langley vet from practicing, after he allegedly defied their initial order that he could continue to practice under the supervision of a chaperone.

The CVBC suspended Etherington’s license to practice on Feb. 16 for the safety of the public “due to the number and seriousness of formal complaints received by this office alleging sexual misconduct involving women.”

According to a CBC report earlier this year, Etherington denied the accusations. One of the accusations heard by the CVBC investigation committee was that Etherington looked at a client’s breasts instead of her eyes, when speaking to her about her dog, said the CBC.
