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 Animals in Pennsylvania

More individuals are affected by mental issues such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks and insomnia each year. These types of mental issues do not only affect the individual with their daily tasks and activities but can also affect even their loved ones. Thankfully, there are treatments and other support options available for people who are dealing with mental health issues. One of the most preferred support options available today is through emotional support animals. Through this type of support, patients are able to make incredible progress with their mental health. This kind of support is favored not only by patients, but by psychiatrists as well.

The first step you would need to take is to discuss the option with your psychiatrist. Your doctor will conduct a thorough exam to conclude whether or not an emotional support animal is right for you. Once diagnosed, your psychiatrist will give you a certificate that states your present mental state requires you to have your emotional support animal. The certificate must have the doctor’s license number, type and date issued. The said certificate must be updated every year. Once you have obtained this letter from your doctor, you are now able to enjoy the benefits and privileges of having an emotional support animal. 

If you wish to bring your emotional support animal to school, there are a few steps you must follow. You will need to send the university a copy of the letter from your doctor 60 days before you and your emotional support animal arrive. It is important that you send this letter ahead of time so that the university can make any necessary arrangements. Make sure that you also attach a recent picture of your emotional support animal so the staff in your school will be able to recognize your animal. Having your emotional support animal with you will help alleviate symptoms of any mental issues, especially if there are school activities that trigger your symptoms.

If you live in an apartment, then you must give your landlord a copy of the doctor’s letter so that he or she will be informed regarding your mental state and the need to have an emotional support animal. Your landlord must allow you to bring your support animal with you. Once your landlord has received and read the doctor’s certificate, he or she should then allow you to have your support animal on the premises without any further questions.

Finding the right emotional support animal for you is important, and we can help make the process much easier and faster. You can find the best emotional support animal provider for you with just some simple online research. With our process, you will be able to turn in the application in a timely manner and be able to obtain your emotional support animal quickly.
