Our Veterinarians

Dr. Terry Beebe


Dr. Terry Beebe has been the owner and lead veterinarian at Family Pet Hospital, LLC since January, 2006. He grew up locally on a dairy farm near Scales Mound, IL.  After graduating from the University of Illinois, he and his wife, Jolene operated the family dairy farm with his parents for 12 years.  The dream of being a veterinarian lured Terry away from the family farm.  He attended classes at UW-Platteville for 2 years prior to going to veterinary school.  

Dr. Beebe received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Oklahoma State University in 2000.  Dr. Beebe and Jolene have 3 children, Tanner, Jared, & Taylor.  They raise English Shepherds and their two dogs are Tessa NOON and Storm. 

Dr. Beebe especially enjoys Preventative Medicine, Surgery, and Orthopedics.  Dr. Beebe has taken significant continuing education classes to further his veterinary skills, especially in orthopedics and is one of the few veterinarians in the immediate area willing and able to perform most orthopedic surgeries. He delights in getting to know patients and clients as well as helping future veterinarians gain insight and experience in the profession. 

Dr. Jessica Kassen


 Dr. Jessica Kassen is a native of northwest Illinois, where she grew up on her family farm with a wide variety of pets. She graduated from Iowa State University with her DVM in 2016 and previously practiced at a small animal/exotics clinic. 

Dr. Kassen and her husband live in rural southwest WI with their young son, Grant. Their current list of pets includes a dog, cats, chickens, goats, and a horse. She loves to spend her free time baking and working in the garden.

Dr. Kassen enjoys getting to know families and their pets, and providing individualized care and support through every stage of their pet’s life.   

Dr. Naomi Sprank


Dr. Naomi Sprank earned her DVM from Iowa State University's College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. After graduation, Dr. Sprank practiced both at a humane society and a small animal/exotics clinic. 

Dr. Sprank lives in a small town near the Dubuque area with her two young children, Ella and Clark. Her two rescued pets include a white German Shepherd named Apollo and a Goldendoodle named Shire. 

She is excited about practicing in the Galena area and getting to know the clients and their pets. She enjoys helping people build life long human-animal bonds with their pets through personalized, individual care.
