Let’s Build Your Dream Practice


2016 Veterinary Economics Hospital Design People’s Choice Award Winner

As your veterinary practice grows and thrives, you may want to consider the next steps to expand the footprint of your clinic. A ground-up construction project is a great way to grow your practice and invest in your future. Our team has funded over 2,394,000 square feet of veterinary construction projects and can help you build a new facility that benefits your business and your clients.

Live Oak will review your practice’s financial history to let you know how much debt your business can support. You want your new building to increase business, not stress your cash flow. That’s why we offer up to 25 year loan terms that improve cash flow and allow for lower monthly payments.

A New Leash on Life: Veterinary Acquisition Financing

Another way to grow your business or become a practice owner is by acquiring an existing veterinary practice. Live Oak offers financing for the acquisition of the business as well as the real estate.

Just like your clients want an experienced veterinarian for the life of their pet, you’ll want a lender who is seasoned in practice acquisitions and dedicated to your long-term success. Live Oak will guide you through the loan process and provide resources to ensure a successful transition—even after the loan closes.

To get started making your veterinary aspirations a reality, please provide the following:

  • Personal financial statement
  • Personal resume
  • Current profit/loss statement from the practice
  • Business tax returns for the past three years
