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 Support Animal Colorado

ESA Letter – Colorado

Do you live in Colorado or are you considering a move there? If you are thinking about getting an emotional support animal (ESA) or already have one, you should familiarize yourself with Colorado’s laws regarding ESAs.

Emotional Support Animals in Colorado

Because the laws that allow you to live with your ESA (Fair Housing Act) and fly with your ESA (Air Carrier Access Act) are federal laws, the requirements in Colorado are no different than in all the other states. You need a properly executed ESA letter. 

There is one important difference, though. Your ESA letter must come from a mental health professional licensed in the state of Colorado. Don’t worry, in our massive network, the DOGtor has many licensed Colorado mental health professionals ready to help you.

Colorado ESA Law

Although there are not many ESA specific laws in Colorado, it is against the law for someone to intentionally misrepresent need for an assistance animal or the presence of a disability or to request a housing accommodation and/or gain access to a public place. 

Please note that laws might be added or changed after this article has been posted, so you should check for any changes that could affect you and your ESA.

ESAs in Colorado Rental Properties

With a proper ESA letter, the Fair Housing Act (FHA) gives you the right to live with your emotional support animal at no additional charge, even if the property has a “no pets” policy or specified pet deposit. 

There are certain circumstances, however, that could result in your ESA being legally denied:  

  • Your ESA animal is too large for reasonable accommodation, such as a Ralphie the Buffalo (mascot of the University of Colorado) in a one bedroom apartment.
  • Your ESA poses a direct threat to the safety and health of other residents.
  • Your chosen residence is a single family home that is not represented by a real estate agent.
  • The development in question has 4 or fewer units and one of them is lived in by the landlord.

The Next Step

For your emotional support animal to be recognized by federal law and in Colorado, you need a proper ESA letter from a mental health professional licensed in the state of Colorado. The DOGtor can handle that need easily. We have helped thousands of people over the years get the documentation they need with our fast, simple, and affordable process that is covered by a 100% same day refund guarantee if you don’t qualify.
