Are you wondering how to get an Emotional Support Dog or other ESA?
If you already have an animal that helps alleviate your symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, fear…
You may already have one.
In case you didn’t know, an Emotional Support Animal is a pet that helps alleviate symptoms of a mental or emotional disability through companionship and affection.
Unlike most types of assistance animals, such as service dogs, ESAs are not required to have any kind of specialized training or experience.
Here’s what the Department of Housing and Urban Development stated:
“The Department’s position has been that animals necessary as a reasonable accommodation do not necessarily need to have specialized training. Some animals perform tasks that require training, and others provide assistance that does not require training.”
Also, Emotional Support Animal prescription letters aren’t just limited to companion dogs.
People have used cats, pigs, and even a turkey as Emotional Support Animals.
Emotional Support Animal Certification
In order to enjoy the benefits of having an ESA, all you need is an official letter written by a licensed mental health professional, such as a Psychologist.
So long as you pass our online examination and you do qualify, then based on questions from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), you can get an official prescription letter for your Emotional Support Animal.
Unlike most other places you can get an official ESA prescription letter online, ours meets all requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, other emotional support animal laws and is 100% HIPAA compliant.
An ESA Prescription Letter from Emotional Pet Support provides:
- Recognition that you are a patient under a licensed mental health professional’s care for a mental or emotional disability.
- Verification that you are significantly limited by a disability, such as depression or a similar condition, affecting your mental well-being.
- Prescription for an emotional support dog (also known as a companion dog), or another support animal, as a necessary reinforcement for your mental health.
Our brief and comprehensive questionnaire is completely confidential and only takes a few minutes to complete to see if you qualify for an ESA!
