Talk to Rangewell – the business finance experts

Across the broad range of lenders in the market, are specialist lenders who understand the veterinary sector in detail and can offer the business funding you need.

At Rangewell we recognise your professional status, and we work harder to find you better solutions - which can include 100% finance for many of your needs.

Animal medicine technology has seen some astonishing advances. MRIs, ultrasound and laparoscopy are only the beginning - and your veterinary practice may need them all

These new techniques mean you can offer even higher standards of veterinary care – but providing all the new equipment for your vet surgery means you need to make substantial investments.

The equipment you need for your surgery can include:

  • Autoclaves
  • Examination tables
  • Infusion pumps
  • Anaesthetic equipment
  • Dental equipment
  • Incubators
  • Surgical lights
  • Medical gas systems
  • Defibrillators
  • Ultrasound machines
  • Ventilators
  • X-ray systems

Of course, it is not only specialised surgery equipment you will need. Your veterinary practice will need a full range of business equipment, computers and related IT as well.

Funding the equipment you need for your veterinary practice

At Rangewell, we believe that asset funding solutions can often provide the most cost-effective ways to provide equipment for your veterinary practice.

Asset Finance includes solutions to let you buy equipment outright or lease it.

Hire Purchase

Hire Purchase lets you spread the cost of buying equipment. You will need to pay a deposit plus fixed monthly instalments. Arrangements generally last between 12 and 72 months after which the equipment becomes yours.

Hardwearing items which will go on giving service for years, like your examination table or drug safe might be ideal for a hire purchase arrangement.


Leasing can make higher cost items more affordable by spreading the cost across their economic life. At the end of the agreement, the asset may either become yours – perhaps with a final payment – or be returned to the lease company. This type of finance could be the best option for delicate equipment with a limited life, such as portable ultrasound kits.

Contract Hire

Contract Hire is a special kind of leasing arrangement usually used for vehicles. Payments are calculated on the purchase value less the estimated value of the vehicle at the end of the agreement which helps to keep your monthly repayments down and makes it straightforward to switch to a new vehicle at the end of the agreement. It can provide solutions whether you need a car for visiting farms or making house calls, or a larger vehicle for setting up a mobile surgery.
