Polished Concrete Floors in Veterinary Clinics
Concrete flooring options in veterinary clinics vary based on the types of animals being treated and the specific procedures provided within the facility, but what’s more likely to impact the choice in flooring is the need for cleanliness throughout the clinic. Concrete flooring in veterinary clinics be must not only be resistant to urine or other animal waste, it should feature an impermeable surface that blocks odor absorption and stains while holding up against harsh chemical cleaners used to sanitize the area on a routine basis.
At Craftsman Concrete Floors, we have a variety of polished concrete and epoxy flooring solutions that are ideal for use throughout veterinary clinics.
Choosing the Best Flooring for Veterinary Clinics
Deciding on flooring for a veterinary clinic requires a bit of careful consideration to ensure the most appropriate coating is applied in each area of the facility. Polished concrete is a low-cost option that can work throughout most areas of the veterinary clinic and is particularly useful in customer facing lobby and office areas.

In exam rooms, operating rooms, and kennels where a more durable surface that can hold up to heavy sanitization is necessary, epoxy coatings are a better solution. Epoxy flooring options provide a long-lasting and suitable choice throughout the clinic. This flooring is easy to clean and sanitize and durable enough to stand up to harsh cleansers and the frequent abrasion or scratching that occurs with animal traffic.
Benefits of Epoxy Flooring for Veterinary Clinics
Hygiene and pathogen control are top concerns in a veterinary clinic as is ease of maintenance and long-lasting durability. Unique flooring systems for clinics must be able to withstand an array of disinfectants and cleaners used to keep surfaces clean and free of harmful dirt, debris and liquids. Not only is epoxy a safe flooring solution for a veterinary setting, it is sanitary, and slip-resistance additives ensure a level of traction appropriate for areas where paws, claws, and hooves are likely to track through.
Epoxy flooring is:
- Durable & able to withstand heavy cleaning, chemicals & sanitizers
- Resistant to animal waste & liquid pathogens
- Odor & stain resistant
- Easy to clean & very low-maintenance
- Slip-resistant when proper additives are applied

Pet Safe Sanitary Floor Coatings
An epoxy concrete floor in your veterinary clinic will have very specific sanitary advantages over other porous flooring options such as tile or other non-resinous surfaces. Grout lines and the seams that tile and other subflooring systems have are breeding ground for bacteria growth and odor, but epoxy flooring creates a seamless barrier that protects the existing concrete surface.
The durable barrier produced by epoxy coatings protect concrete floors so they resist staining and odor, while preventing the formation of bacteria growth that may otherwise occur on unfinished concrete surfaces or porous surfaces such as tile or sanded grout. The protected concrete surface is impervious to liquid waste absorption from blood, urine or other harmful and potentially pathogenic elements.
A Low-Maintenance Solution for Veterinary Practices
In addition to providing a durable coating that can stand up to the tough sanitization needs of a veterinary practice, epoxy flooring is low-maintenance and easy to clean. Epoxy coatings can provide a long-lasting flooring solution that can withstand years of heavy traffic, harsh chemical cleaning and sanitization with minimal maintenance required. This low-maintenance solution represents an affordable choice that is recommended for use in veterinary practices, pet care centers, and animal boarding facilities.
