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. He 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 joined the East Springs team in 2001. He enjoys serving pets and their humans in medicine, surgery and dentistry. Dr. Bush and Kimberlee are blessed with four busy children and a pugle named Dennis. He’s active with kids activities, church and mountain biking.
