eff Adney of Prime Coat Coating Systems recently wrote an excellent two-part Pet Boarding & Daycare article about kennel floor choices (which includes veterinary kennel floor plans). If you missed Part 1, you'll want to review how the right choice of materials can stand up to years of daily traffic in a busy veterinary practice.
If your veterinary practice is planning to build or remodel your patient recovery area, boarding kennel or other areas with cages, we invite you to consider how your kennel flooring and equipment go hand-in-hand for safe and sanitary operation.

Ritch Batterton here from TriStar Vet. Back in July 2,2001, we filed a patent on our new design to help dog groomers and veterinary teams save their backs while washing dogs of all sizes.
