Mona Griffin DVM
Dr. Marilynn Baeyens received her DVM from Michigan State University in 1975. She ranked near the top of graduating class and received the outstanding Small Animal Medicine Award for her class. After graduation she moved to Little Rock, Ar and joined a small animal veterinary practice as an associate veterinarian. She continued in this capacity for 38 years. During that period she took on a second job as the veterinarian for the Little Rock Zoo. She retired as the zoo vet two years ago after 30 years of service.
Dr. Baeyens is widely recognized by her clients and fellow veterinarians as being one of the finest veterinarians in Arkansas. She was honored in 2010 as the Arkansas Veterinary Medical Association Veterinarian of the Year by her colleagues. During her years in practice she has devoted a good deal of her time and expertise working with state and local authorities on wildlife rehabilitation, an endeavor that she is passionate about.
In addition to being an outstanding practitioner, she has many personal attributes that set her apart. She is friendly, highly principled and completely devoted to the well-being of her patients. She has many devoted clients that wouldn’t consider taking their pets anywhere else.
She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Arkansas Veterinary Medicine Association, Association of Avian Veterinarians, Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians.
Recently Dr. Baeyens decided to establish and build her own practice which became the Baeyens Hauk Veterinary Group. Joining her as part of the Group are two outstanding young veterinarians, her daughter Dr. Katie Baeyens and Dr. Blair Hauk. Many of her former clients have followed her in this this new venture.
In her leisure time (what little there is!) Dr. Baeyens enjoys horseback riding, being with her two Border Collies and helping her husband run their cattle ranch in Western Arkansas.
Dr. Katie Baeyens earned her DVM from LSU in 2008. Since graduation she has been an associate veterinarian in a small animal practice. She grew up in an environment populated by animals including horses, cattle, rodents, birds, reptiles and of course dogs and cats. Her primary goal in life was to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a veterinarian and some day practice veterinary medicine with her mother. She achieved her second goal when she became part of the Baeyens Hauk Veterinary group.
Dr. Katie is an excellent surgeon and diagnostician and has a great rapport with her clients and their animals. She is described by her friends, clients and fellow veterinarians as being a tireless worker completely devoted to becoming the best she can be. She is an avid reader of the veterinary literature and is determined to stay abreast of the latest technologies and trends in her science.
She is an active member of the American Veterinary Association and the Arkansas Veterinary Association.
In her spare time she enjoys riding and taking care of her horses and hanging out with friends. She also is devoted to her three Border Collies ( Will, Runt Boy and Matt) and a large group of strays and abuse cases that have ended up living with her. You can seldom find her without one or two of her dogs close by, whether at work or at home.
