Required clothing for DVM clinical instruction in the Livestock Section (food animal section) of the VTH:

The following clothing requirements are intended to limit the potential for spread of infectious agents among large animal patients in the VTH. These requirements are also intended to protect the veterinary student from contaminating his or her clothing with infectious agents. These requirements are identical to those required for clinical rotations in the third and fourth years of the DVM curriculum.

1. Sleeved coveralls. Sleeved coveralls limit contact of potentially infectious biologic material with underlying street clothes. Coveralls with torn sleeves or holes will not be considered of acceptable professional appearance. A source for durable coveralls is Pella Veterinary Apparel. A suggested style is the Short-Sleeve Coveralls available at VetText. Other, similar brands and styles are acceptable; consider VetText one potential source. Coveralls are typically ordered according to chest size and come in short, regular, and tall leg lengths. It is recommended that you order a chest size that allows you to wear warm clothing underneath; the use of men’s sizing is recommended for this purpose as well. Bib coveralls (with suspender straps) are not

2. buckles are not allowed, as these tend to trap manure and are far more difficult to thoroughly disinfect than the recommended 1- or 2- button or snap design. allowed for student use in the Livestock Section of the VTH as these enable contamination of underlying clothing.

3. Rubber overboots. The overboots accepted for wear in the Livestock Section of the VTH are those that can be pulled on and off over street shoes or boots. Examples include Tingley’s boots or PVC Overboots. Both of these should be the 10”-12” height and have one or two snaps or buttons as fasteners. The low-profile tread on these overboots results in less tracking of manure and

therefore reduces the risk of transfer of infectious agents among patients in the clinic. These overboots can be purchased at ordered online at VetText and are also available for purchase at other local farm and ranch supply stores. You may wish to purchase a size of overboot that allows you to wear warm footwear underneath during the winter months. “Wellington”-type over-the-calf boots are not allowed in the Livestock Section of the VTH because their deep tread facilitates tracking of manure and because shoes cannot be worn underneath these types of boots. Boots with
