Bill Hessman, DVM
Dr. Bill Hessman received a BS in 1983 and his DVM from Kansas State University in 1985. He returned to southwest Kansas after graduation and opened a mixed animal practice concentrating on feedyard consultation. Because of the impact that BVDV had with his feedyard clients, he began conducting research on BVDV in feedyard production systems. Dr. Hessman has conducted multiple studies with the USDA, Universities and IDEXX Laboratories. Considered to be an expert on BVDV in cattle production systems, Dr. Hessman has authored or co-authored multiple papers on BVDV and has presented this information nationally and internationally.

Becky Leggett, DVM
I was born and raised in Satanta and graduated from Oklahoma Panhandle State University with my B.S. in Biology and Animal Science. I earned my DVM from University of Missouri in May 2014. Started working at Haskell County Animal Hospital in June 2014. I came back to southwest Kansas to be close to family. I have two dogs and three horses that consume my free time. I enjoy barrel racing and the outdoors.
Debra Hessman, Practice Manager
I was born and raised just down the road in Satanta, KS, where I had a terrific childhood and school experience. Upon graduating from Satanta High School I attended Kansas State University and received my bachelor of science in Finance and Marketing.
Dr. Bill and I were married in 1985 and moved to Sublette in 1986 when we opened the Haskell County Animal Hospital. I have been working with Bill since 1991 as practice manager. Bill and I have three adult children, and are active in the wonderful town of Sublette.

We now have several children; a set of twins and a mixture of four legged fur babies. My love for animals is the reason I started working for Haskell County Animal Hospital in 2015.
