What you need to get started

Becoming a partner of a new practice is more affordable than you think, with a personal investment of £20,000*. We help secure bank funding, and being one of the largest vet groups in the industry gives us access to some of the best interest rates.  The bank loan will allow you the capital to pay for the practice build, fit out and equipment, along with all other associated costs of running your own business. Once your bank loan is repaid, not only will you be able to claim dividends, but you will also be repaid your initial investment.

*£30,000 combined partner loan required where there is more than one applicant.

The practice

Your practice will be fitted out and equipped to meet your specific clinical interests, long term goals and business requirements. All new practices will meet the RCVS General Practice Standard.

We support and encourage our practice owners' ambition to develop their skills and grow their businesses through their clinical interests. This can be financial, commercial, or physical growth.

Clinical autonomy

Practice ownership with Vets for Pets is the only model in the industry that gives you complete clinical autonomy. You're independent to make your own clinical and practice-based decisions, allowing you to run your practice, your way and enabling you to have the freedom to make the best decisions for your patients.

Our support office teams will work with suppliers to negotiate the best rates on products but will not restrict you to an approved list.
