If you've owned your veterinary hospital for three years or longer, congratulations! You've built your practice into a significant asset. So now might be a good time to consider putting your practice equity to work toward growing your business or securing your future. What might you be able to accomplish with a little extra investment?

  • Upgrade your practice and equipment to expand your services, take in more patients, or simply be more competitive.
  • Fund a succession transition to ensure you have a qualified associate to manage and buy out your hospital as you move toward retirement.
  • Invest in the commercial real estate where your practice resides, giving you an income option when it comes time to sell your practice.
  • Pay for education that enables you to add new or advanced procedures to your service offering.

At Wells Fargo Practice Finance, Practice Equity Loans are available with simple, convenient terms designed to meet your specific situation and needs. Our loans range from $25,000 to $500,000 based on your practice revenue, with terms up to 10 years and no appraisal required.
