An emotional animal, or otherwise referred to as an emotional support animal (ESA), is a type of companion animal. These animals purpose is to provide their owners with companionship because they are suffering from a form of emotional disability. Just the presence of one of these animals can make the owner feel at ease and improve the quality of their life significantly. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who have an emotional disability, but they don’t have anyone to confide in and feel alone. This is where these types of animals come in. While they can’t talk back and tell their owner that everything’s going to be alright; they don’t have to. The company, love, and affection that the animal offers is enough, and the owner doesn’t feel any judgement or pity either.
What Types of Animals Are These?
An emotional support animal can be any type of domesticated animal that doesn’t have any behavioural or social problems. This means that it isn’t aggressive, disruptive, or a danger to anyone or anything, and it must be in your total control at all times. People have had dogs, cats, birds, mice, and many other forms of creatures as an ESA and there is no form of training required for them either.
Why Are Emotional Animals So Good?
Once someone has seen a mental health professional and been approved to get an ESA, they can start to turn their life around for the better. An ESA can bring love, affection, joy, and hope into someone’s life that they never thought they would have experienced. Because these animals don’t discriminate or judge, the owner can feel nothing but love and respect for their pet because of the way that they get treated by it. This can then significantly improve their mood and overall well-being and make them have a reduction in the symptoms of their disability.
Should I Get One?
If you have a verifiable disability and can get approval from a registered mental health professional, then you should definitely entertain the idea of getting one of these animals. There are millions of people across America who are suffering from an emotional disability. This can include mental and psychological disabilities and even chronic insomnia, anxiety, stress, and depression. A lot of these people don’t even know that they are living with a medical condition either, and think that it’s either normal or just the way they are. This can lead to many more people suffering and their condition progressively getting worse because they haven’t sought treatment. This type of animal can significantly improve the symptoms that these people experience and in some cases, they have even eradicated the symptoms.
You too could improve your condition and start enjoying your life more. You don’t have to feel alone or helpless when an ESA is around.
