New Veterinary Practice Construction
There’s a lot to consider in the design of your animal hospital. How many exam rooms do you need? Will you offer grooming or boarding services? How much space do you need for surgeries? Do you want to offer separate waiting rooms for dogs and cats? Above all else, you want your practice to be a warm and inviting place where clients and their pets will feel comfortable.
Only you can answer these questions to put your personal stamp on your practice. As your local veterinary practice lending partner, CBTFL takes care of the details so you can create the big picture. While you plan your new veterinary practice, we’ll help you figure out how much of a loan your business can take on in order to maximize growth and profitability.
Veterinary Practice Acquisition
Taking over an existing veterinary practice is sometimes an easier way to realize your dreams of owning your own veterinary practice. CBTFL will help you assess the practice’s profit/loss record and tax history to determine the business cash flow to service acquisition debt. Just as you provide good care for your furry patients throughout their lives, CBTFL’s friendly and experienced loan officers will guide you through the process and adjustment period even after your loan has closed. We can also include working capital as part of your financing package to ensure a smooth transition with continual cash flow.
Improvements and Renovations
Repairs and improvements are an inevitable part of maintaining the physical space your veterinary practice occupies. And as your business grows and thrives, you may need to expand to make room for new patients. CBTFL provides flexible and competitive financing options so you can fix and build as needed without sacrificing profitability.
Veterinary Equipment Financing
When delivering excellent service to your clients requires an investment in new equipment or technology, CBTFL’s flexible equipment loans will keep you from getting left behind. Our local decision making means you can buy what you need for your practice when you need it.
