Our Services

Wellness Care

At Metropolis Veterinary Clinic, we sincerely believe that keeping our patients feeling their best is much better than treating illness. 


Dental Care

Over half of all cats and dogs have dental problems. Dental disease can be painful and can even damage your pet’s heart and kidneys. 



We provide the highest quality of surgical care for your pet, whether you have a young pet who needs to be spayed or neutered, or a pet with a serious injury, tumor or illness. 


Laser Therapy

Laser treatments reduce inflammation, aid in wound healing, and speed up post-surgical recovery. 


X-Ray and Ultrasound

We have a state-of-the-art digital x-ray system that allows us to get high quality images of your pet with a minimum amount of radiation. 


After Hours Consult

After office hours?  Possible weekend emergency? Not to worry.  Beagle’s Bay is available by phone for after hours consults.  



We Make House Calls!

Some pets have a hard time coming into the vet clinic, whether because of their age, size or anxiety from previous bad veterinary experiences. Some pet owners may have challenges of their own, including limited mobility, inability to drive or small children who would rather be at home than in a vet clinic. Whatever the issue, we can help. Dr. Baker can make a housecall for your pet, and most routine services can be provided in the comfort and security of your own home. If your pet requires surgery or x-rays, we can help transport them to the clinic with minimum stress. Housecalls require advance notice to schedule; call the clinic for pricing and to arrange a time that is convenient for you.

A Certified Fear Free Professional

Meet Dr. Baker

Dr. Deanna Baker is a 2011 graduate of the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine.  She received her undergraduate degree from Mississippi Valley State University where she competed in Division I softball following playing for Reidland throughout high school.

Dr. Baker took ownership of Beagle’s Bay Animal Hospital (formerly known as Martell Animal Clinic) in January 2021, and now resides with her husband and twin sons in Metropolis.  Dr. Baker is a native of Paducah, Ky., and her husband of Champaign, Ill., so having the opportunity to move to Metropolis feels like a homecoming to both.

Dr. Baker enjoys the personal aspects of veterinary medicine and getting to know her clients and their “furry family members” she gets to take care of.  Being able to enjoy this while owning her own veterinary clinic is a lifelong dream come true.

Dr. Baker currently has three cats.  She loves dogs, but recently lost her beloved rat terrier.  She’s hoping to add another dog into the mix in the future.

Dr. Deanna Baker and her staff are dedicated to providing high quality veterinary services in the Metropolis area.  It’s important to us that your pet will be treated with loving care as if they were our own pets.  Your pet is a member of your family, and we respect and celebrate that fact.  Everything we do confirms our commitment to giving your pet the best possible care.
