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.

The Best At What We Do

We have helped so my people get an esa, let us help you too...

Seattle, WA Emotional Support Animals

In 2019, the state legislature in Washington passed a law to limit the definition of a service animal. This law was a response to perceived misrepresentation of pets, emotional support animals (ESAs), and therapy animals.

With this law, in Seattle and other Washington cities, misrepresenting your ESA, therapy animal or pet as a service animal may be subject to a $500 fine and/or the animal being removed from the premises.

How the Law Works

The first part defines a service animal as:

  • Dogs or miniature horses that have been trained to perform tasks specifically related to the disability of their owner.

The second part defines what the person with the service animal can legally be asked. This is limited to:

  • Do you need the animal because of a disability?
  • What task has the animal been trained to perform? 

The person with the service animal cannot be required to:

  • Show proof that the animal is a service animal.
  • Offer a demonstration of the animal’s training.

Animal Friendly Seattle

Seattle is very welcoming of pets. For example:

  • Dogs can ride on city buses
  • There are many restaurants that allow dogs, including, according to Yelp, Norm’s Eatery & Ale House, Zig Zag Cafe, Bongo’s, Retreat, and Pike Place Chowder
  • There is a large selection of off-leash areas, including the fully-fenced 9-acre Magnuson Park
  • There are over 70 hotels that welcome dogs including the Alexis Hotel and the Hyatt Regency Seattle
  • You can rent dog-friendly paddle boards, canoes, and kayaks at Greenlake Boat Rental
