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.

Travel

Once you have your certificate, you will be able to bring along your assistant wherever go. If you wish to travel to another country, all you have to do is send the airline a copy of the certificate. By doing this, you will be informing the airline that you will be traveling with your furry friend. They will need to be informed at least 48 hours ahead of your departure. This will give them enough time to prepare and make any necessary seat arrangements to make your flight more comfortable. By law, all airlines must allow you and your companion entrance onto the aircraft.

School

You can also bring your companion to school with you. Just make sure to send the university/school a certificate with the most recent photo of your pet. This way they will know what breed and size your assistant animal is. Again, by law, you must be allowed to bring an animal into the school grounds if it will help you.

Ohio Law Protects the Rights of People Who need Service Animals in Accommodation

The Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA (adata.org) and the Ohio Administrative Code 4112-5-06 does exactly that. It prohibits accommodation/landlords from discriminating against a person with disabilities. This means that the entry of an animal assistant must be allowed or else a fee payment is required. The code defines an animal assistant as “any animal which aids a person with a disability”. For more information regarding the laws surrounding ESA’s and accommodation visit AnimalLaw.info.

As you might already know, or should know if you have not yet heard, the airlines and the Department of Transportation have been trying to change the travel rules and crack down on ESAs for many years, and now, along with everything else that has happened in 2020, it looks like they’re finally going to make those changes. However, rest assured that we here at The DOGtor are going to do anything and everything we can to change what we need to accordingly, so that you, and all of our ESA members are allowed to continue travelling with their furry family support companions for many more years to come.
