Hardwood and ceramic have similar merits, in that a good, well-cared-for installation can last for years. Modern ceramics can now be shaped and printed look like many different species of hardwood flooring.
Ceramic is one of the easiest floors to maintain over the course of its life. Glazed tiles are impervious to water and stains, and even unglazed tiles can be sealed and protected. Grout lines should be sealed annually. Other than this, the floor will require only regular sweeping and damp mopping to remove dirt and loose debris.
Natural stone materials exist as a chemical base. Because of this, you have to avoid the use of any acidic cleansers, as they will cause a reaction in the stone which can result in a permanent stain. Sealing the surface will help to prevent this to some extent if spills or splashes occur.
While vinyl is much thinner than ceramic, it also takes on the characteristics of the subfloor that it is installed over. If it is laid on a hard surface such as concrete, it becomes like a second skin, hugging so close to the solid strength below that animal claws will have trouble finding purchase to puncture or tear its outer layer. At the same time vinyl is also a much less expensive choice than ceramic for a commercial veterinary or boarding house location, although it doesn't tend to last as long.
