I returned from my first visit to the Busch Animal Hospital earlier today for my 7 year old dog's annual check up. Dr. Girgis and his staff are very caring and warm and I could tell they truly love animals and care about them. Their service was fast and the exam and treatments were very thorough. I really liked his cozy animal hospital, and I really respect that he truly cares for his pets and his business. I came on a busy day, and he still managed to give me and Nala (my dog) the same amount of time and care he'd give on a not so busy day. I highly recommend this vet and will bring my beloved dog here anytime she needs a check up.
Went to go get medication for my cat that had tape worms. I had always heard that the veterinarian who worked here was always so friendly and fair with all his customers that walk through his doors so I had to see for myself. When I got to Busch animal hospital, I was surprised at how clean the facilities were. I met the doctor and staff (who were so kind and courteous) and he explained to me the price for the tape worm medication, and he also offered a package deal special that also included the price for the office visit, rabies, distemper, and a check for worms other than tape worms. He gave me the option and didn't "force" me, so to speak, to go with the package deal. He was even so kind to allow me all the time I needed to make my decision. I'm glad I went for the complete package deal, cause his prices are definitely cheaper than other vets I've been to. I will definitely be back here and definitely recommend this veterinarian to everyone who wants personalized quality health care for their pet!

So, I came to Busch animal hospital after seeing the advertisement for a $59 recession special (office visit, physical exam, fecal, and shots).
When I arrived, it was hard not to focus on the extremely dated/borderline goss appearance of the whole facility. But I pushed through, and tried to give them the benefit of the doubt.
Unfortunately, once we got to the exam room, my doubts were not exactly put to rest. When I think of any medical facility, I picture a much more sterile looking environment. I'm sure there are much worse, but this facility needs a renovation......bad.
The doctor did a very quick physical exam and then fecal. Once he was getting the vaccinations ready he was telling me what vaccines he was getting ready to do. I noticed that he didn't mention the bordatella, so I asked why. He informed me that the bordatella was not part of the special. I read the flyer, and indeed there was no mention in the small print* about the bordatella. I have never been to a place where bordatella was not included in the shot package. So, I asked him how much the bordatella shot would be, and he said $29 extra. That price is too high in a ""nice"" office, in this place, it's rediculous. He then asked if I wanted to do the heartworm test, and I asked how much that would be....$49. Unreal. My total ended up being $99.
On top of the $59 ""special"", and $29 bordatella, I was charged a $5 file setup fee (I filled out the paperwork completely, yet he had me come up to tell him information to put into their computer, all of which was in the paperwork). Also, a $6 ""environment"" fee. I'm pretty sure this is a waste disposal fee, but the fact that the word ""environment"" was used makes this seem extra insane.
I can get all of these things, plus a heartworm test for under $85 through the Healthy Vets (mobile vets) at the Feed Depot on Nebraska. The only reason I gave this place a chance was because I needed to board my dog last minute. At least now I know.
I just returned from my first visit to the Busch Animal Hospital for my 9 year old dog's annual check up. The doctor and his staff are very caring and warm and I could tell they truly love animals. Their service was fast and the exam and treatments were very thorough. I highly recommend this vet and will bring my beloved dog here anytime she needs a check up.

I am sad to leave a 2-star review because the doctor is so nice and knowledgeable. However, I brought in my elderly cat with a respiratory infection and the doctor could not even perform any lab work or x-rays in his office. I had to be referred the very expensive specialty clinic down the street for a basic blood panel which involved a whole new and high office call fee. I did not go. I left with some meds and support for my cat and now over $200 later, I have to find another clinic and start all over. What a waste of $200+ and an entire morning. My cat needs help NOW and I feel I let her down by choosing this clinic. Very sad. I am sure he is quite good when he has the equipment and supplies needed to perform procedures but in a critical case like mine where basic testing was needed, this was not a good choice.
Went in with coupon printed from the internet, for puppy shots, deworming and exam for $49. and a coupon for dog exam, no shots, for $29. Because dog had small sore on his back, Vet said he needed antibodic. He charged us $200 for the visit for a visit that should have cost $80! The Vet didn't speak clear english, so I didn't understand his explanation of why it cost so much. Also, he was out of tags, so, I have to go back in two weeks to get the tag. I am real unhappy and don't even want to go back for the tag!
