About Baker Animal Hospital

Our History

Serving the Baker, LA, Area for Over 40 Years

Baker Animal Hospital has been a staple in the Baker, LA, community for over 40 years. However, flooding damage from the Great Flood of 2016 caused the practice to close unexpectedly. Dr. Rebecca McCutcheon re-opened the practice in 2018 to continue its tradition of providing affordable, high-quality veterinary care for the canines and felines of the Baker area.
