I have no experience with accomodating for service animals, but here are a couple PPE suggestions.


They make boots for dogs. The ones made for hunting dog look especially sturdy and would protect the dog’s pads from chemicals and broken glass.

There’s also a product called Doggles, which are goggles made for dogs to protect their eyes when riding on motorcycles/ with their head out in the open.  Most dogs I know wouldn’t wear them, but service dogs are more used to wearing equipment.

They wouldn’t be ANZI Z-87 but could protect against splash.


I see UVM has a Pre-Vet club, you might contact them for suggestions as well.

Hope this helps.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Accommodations for a service animal in the lab


I am trying to make accommodations for a service dog in teaching labs at the university. The students are required to wear closed-toe shoes and safety glasses as a minimum. We have a policy for service animals on campus, however, it doesn't really have any safety measures for the animals when they are in labs. Does anyone know of ways to keep the animal safe or have any experience with this type of situation? 


Thanks for any help you are able to give.
