Interest-free loans are available for clients whose pets need veterinary attention during Covid-19.

CarefreeCredit provides interest-free loans from £250 upwards through its network of member practices to help owners meet veterinary bills. The company says the service is more affordable than credit cards or bank loans for pet owners who either do not have insurance or who need to pay unexpected additional costs beyond the cover of their insurance.

The online application takes around two minutes to complete and an answer is given instantly. Once the loan is approved, the vet is paid immediately, so that treatment can begin straight away. All loans are subject to age, status and a full credit search.

CarefreeCredit also provides finance for horse owners.

Vet Stewart Halperin, founder and chief executive, said: ‘Although it’s imperative we all stay at home unless absolutely necessary, it’s also important we care for our pets during these difficult times, too.

‘Half the British public have a pet, but 75 per cent of them don’t have insurance...this interest-free loan scheme has already helped over 6000 pets throughout the UK.’
