Your guide to emotional support animal certification

Emotional Support Animal, also known as ESA, is a companion animal for people who need therapeutic healing. In general, cats and dogs often double up as ESAs and offer required companionship and love to the patient. However, it should be noted that an individual must have confirmed and have a unique disability to get an ESA. Unlike service animals, emotional support animals don’t need any training to become an ESA, barring the basic training for peaceful co-existence

with humans. Here are some

of the facts worth knowing.

First things first, an emotional support animal isn’t a family pet, but it works as a companion for people dealing with varied kinds of emotional, mental and psychiatric issues. ESAs can be often included in most communities, where pets aren’t allowed or there are other issues. In fact, not many know that denying accommodation to a patient with ESA may result in an FHA violation. For obtaining an emotional support animal, one must have a prescription from a doctor or healthcare professional, which will state that the patient has been diagnosed with some kind of mental health problem and requires an ESA for therapeutic care and companionship.

When a person needs an ESA for any kind of disability or psychiatric issues, they must first seek permission from their landlord. It is best to be as polite as possible in a written letter, where the patient (or his family) can stress on the need for the animal. Keep in mind that you don’t need to clearly mention the kind of disability you have, but typically, a prescription from a healthcare practitioner is considered to be enough. It is also worthy to understand that service dogs are not same

as an ESA and possess special skills.

On the other hand, ESAs are prescribed

by a doctor, who knows that the

presence of the animal is essential for

the wellbeing of the patient.

Online ESA prescription letters are now a popular choice for patients who want a companion animal. Advanced services will ask you to fill a questionnaire, and based on the facts, they will assign a healthcare professional, who will prescribe the ESA, if at all needed. For the entire work, these services may charge a little extra, which is worth paying for, given that you will be benefited in many ways. Professional companies may even offer a refund

on the cost when you do not

qualify for the certificate. However,

do read the procedure and terms

and conditions in detail to

understand whether an animal

is your ultimate choice

for healing.
