Dr. Brad Bush

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.
