How It Works

Complete Online Exam

All individuals seeking an Emotional Support Animal prescription must complete an online medical examination consisting of 74 questions. It takes anywhere from 15 – 20 minutes to complete so please make sure that you are ready to fill it out and move forward, since you won't be able to save your exam and come back to it later. You can begin the exam by clicking on the “online medical exam”tab located in the main navigation menu or by clicking the “get started now” tab below.

Make Payment

Potential patients should keep in mind that if the evaluating medical doctor does not feel comfortable writing you a prescription for an emotional support animal, then you will receive a same-day refund. Refunds are granted only to those who are not approved by the evaluating physician. After completing your online exam you will be required to make a payment and choose a treatment plan that best applies to you. If you need an ESA letter for housing, please choose the housing plan. The entry level housing plan is called the “care plan” and is 159.00. If you need a letter only for travel, then please choose the travel plan for 149.00. If you need documentation for both, you will need to select the Compassion Plan for 199.00, which will cover both travel and housing. Regardless, you must submit payment at that time or your exam will not be processed.

The DOGtor Reviews Your Exam

The Dogtor reviews your exam & you'll receive a notification within 48 hours if approved or not. Approval is typically the same day on a normal work week. In the event that the Dogtor needs to do a further evaluation he may want to speak to you over Skype. However, it's very rare.

You've Been Approved!

All individuals who have submitted an online exam will hear back from the evaluating physician within 24-48 hours. The doctor will email you from this or her personal email address to the email address that you have on file, so please make sure to check spam folders and wait patiently for the correspondence from the M.D. A doctor may ask you more questions about your exam so please be prepared to provide further details if they want more info in order for them to make an informed decision. Usually these questions are about asking for more clarity or that you have been vague in answering a specific question. As stated in Step 3, if the doctor does not approve you, you will receive a same-day refund. However, in the event that you are approved, you will receive your emailed PDF copy of the prescription letter typically on the same day. You will also receive a courtesy hard copy that will be mailed to the address that you have on file when taking the online exam. The hard copy take a few business days to arrive, depending on where you are located in the USA.

Emotional Dog Support

Emotional Dog Support

Emotional dog support is becoming a common form of therapeutic relief for people who are suffering from emotional disabilities in America today. Dogs are not only the most common type of emotional support animal (ESA), but they are also believed to be the most effective too. Any type of canine regardless of breed or size can become an emotional pet too; they just need to meet behavioural and social guidelines. This means that it’s not a threat to anyone and is always in their owner’s control. There are a few types of breeds which may be better suited to your condition, though, and Golden Retrievers and Labradors are popular among people with depression for example.

What is Emotional Dog Support?

This is when someone gets a dog to be their emotional support animal. These animals main purpose is to provide their emotionally disabled owner with companionship. An emotional disability can be a mental or psychiatric condition and also extend to chronic ailments such as depression, stress, and anxiety. The presence of these canines can sometimes be enough just by itself for making their owners feel better about their condition and aid in reducing their symptoms.

How Are These Dogs Effective?

These dogs provide their owners with love, affection, and companionship. It’s this bond that can help improve the owners quality of life improve and in some cases erase the symptoms of their condition completely. This is especially true for many cases where people were suffering from depression and insomnia. People with emotional disabilities can unfortunately lack companionship with someone or maybe a person won’t be able to spend enough time with them. This is one of the reasons why these companion dogs are so popular and they can always be around their owner to provide company.

How Can I Get One?

If you have an emotional disability then you can go and see a registered mental health professional and be assessed for your need for one of these distress dogs. If you are unsure if you have this type of disability, but are experiencing the symptoms of one, then you should also go and see a professional too. If the mental health professional concludes that an ESA will greatly result in one or more of your conditions symptoms being mitigated, then they can issue you with a letter of approval. Once you have this letter, you are free to go and get a canine and get it registered too if you wish to do so.

What Should I Do Now?

Booking an appointment with a mental health professional will be the first step. These professionals are often not your standard general practitioners and you would most likely need to engage in the services of a psychiatrist or therapist. We can also arrange for this for you and you can take our online assessment too. We have extensive experience in this industry and have helped countless people get their approval letters and the other documentation required for their ESA’s. If you feel like you need any assistance, you are more than welcome to contact us and we can arrange for everything to be done for you.
