Dr. Brad Bush
Veterinarian / Owner
Dr. Bush was born in Nebraska and grew up on a dairy and hog farm in Northeast Nebraska. The farm upbringing exposed him to animals from the very beginning. At one point, Dr. Bush and his sister had tamed and named over 60 farm cats. He was active in 4-H where he trained and showed dairy calves. The veterinarians that came to his family’s farm inspired him at the age of seven to become a veterinarian.
Dr. Bush went on to study Animal Science at the University of Nebraska and then earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Kansas State University in 1995. In 2000, Dr. Bush and his wife Kimberlee moved to Colorado Springs to focus on small animals. He enjoys serving pets and their humans in medicine, surgery, and dentistry. Dr. Bush and Kimberlee are blessed with four busy children and a puggle named Dennis. He’s active with kid’s activities, church, and mountain biking.
Hello Northgate Animal Hospital Clients,
I am very excited to be acquiring Northgate Animal Hospital and the opportunity to bring you an expanding vision for our future together. My heart is in serving people and pets while forming lifelong relationships, and so I want NGAH to feel like family. Using my twenty-four years of practice experience, I plan to build on the quality-care that NGAH is already known for. I will be adding ultrasound, expanding in-hospital surgical procedures, and the option for in-hospital orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries by Dr. Jen Swiderski, a board-certified veterinary surgeon. The addition of these services will allow almost all of the care for your furry family members to be provided at NGAH where they are comfortable and familiar.
I am excited to meet each of you and your furry friends!
Brad Bush, DVM
