Funding for veterinary equipment

Setting up in practice or ready to update, being able to call on the latest technology is essential to deliver the quality of care you want. But - from digital X-ray to portable ultrasound -  the latest equipment will mean a major investment. At Rangewell we have found that Asset Funding can provide the most cost-effective solutions when you need equipment:

Hire Purchase

When you want equipment that will go on giving service for years, Hire Purchase can provide an answer.


If you want to use the latest technology without the cost of owning the equipment, leasing will give you the freedom and flexibility you need.

New or used?

Good quality used equipment may be a sound investment. If you are setting up a new practice. Buying used and refurbished veterinary equipment may mean cost savings - and contrary to what you might expect, you don’t need to pay cash.

At Rangewell we can help you spread the cost of used, as well as new, equipment with Asset Finance.  This can provide solutions not just for your clinical equipment, but for any item you use in your practice, including vehicles.

Funding to buy a Veterinary Practice

If you want to buy an existing practice, it will require a substantial investment. It may be possible to arrange a straightforward business loan. Unsecured Loans are ideal for smaller sums. Secured Loans may be used to borrow upwards of £250,000, and so may be more suitable for the costs involved in buying a practice.

If you are thinking of buying into a large practice, you may need to do so as a partner - or buy out a partner who may be retiring. Buy-in and Buyout finance recognises the challenges and provides funding tailored to help you make full use of the opportunity.

Buying a veterinary franchise

A veterinary franchise could provide valuable publicity and support for your practice, but it will mean a substantial initial fee and ongoing costs. Conventional business lenders, such as banks, may not be able to help, as your business is technically a start-up, lacking a business history.

A Franchise Loan package may provide the solution.

Funding to buy your practice premises

You may need premises for your practice with waiting room, consulting rooms and kennels. You may need to borrow for the deposit on a long-term lease. However, you might actually reduce your monthly outgoings if you buy a suitable property with a Commercial Mortgage.

Commercial Property Finance is arranged on an individual basis. Find out more here.

Funding to refurbish veterinary premises

You need to present a  fresh, clinical and modern interior to bring in customers. Find out more about finance for refurbishment.

Funding your plans with a Veterinary Practice Loan

A Practice Loan recognises your status as the owner of a veterinary practice. It can provide a relatively high level of funding at a preferential rate of interest, which you may use for any business purpose.
