We understand that taking care of pets when they are injured or ill can be daunting, and sometimes financially challenging. Finance is a great way to spread the cost of your veterinary care. For your peace of mind, we’ve teamed up with Deko whose technology lets you apply for and complete a loan application quickly, easily and informatively.
Our 0% finance can be used to help you manage payment of larger bills such as:
- Dental procedures
- Orthopaedic surgeries
- Laparoscopic surgeries
- Diagnostics – X-rays, heart scanning
How long does it take?
The online application will take around five minutes for the customer care team at your practice to complete, and the decision is instant. If you have pet insurance but find that the policy does not cover the full of treatment, you can also apply in this way for credit to pay the balance.
How much can I apply for?
We offer a range of interest-free and interest bearing finance options to help you spread the cost over 6, 12, 18 and 24 months. The value of the loan needs to be between £250 – £15,000 and you can choose a deposit of up to 50%.

Your application will be assessed based on eligibility, credit history and affordability and Deko will let you know the outcome in just a few seconds. It’s important to know that when applying for finance a hard credit check is made which is recorded on your credit file.
Once approved, Deko will let you know who the lender is and provide you with their full contact details. You then just need to digitally e-sign your credit agreement, pay your deposit and wait for confirmation that the procedure can go ahead.
In a few cases, your application may be referred to a lender for manual assessment and you’ll be notified by email of the credit decision within 24 hours. If you’re not approved for finance it could be for a variety of reasons and the lender will be able to give you more information.
There is a 14-day cooling off period where you can withdraw from the credit agreement after signing your documents. If you wish to do this please contact us (your retailer) directly. We can cancel the application on your behalf. There is no need to contact Deko or your lender.
A payment plan does not affect our standard refund and returns policy. Just contact us and we’ll cancel your application and the lender will refund your deposit and let you know of any outstanding balance if applicable.
Repaying the loan
Your first direct debit payment will be taken 14 days after you receive your purchase. This will show on your statement as a payment to your lender. You have the right to repay all or part of the loan early at any time.
