We at American Pet make every effort to understand patients’ health and emotional needs for Emotional Support Animals (ESA) and help people who struggle with medically diagnosed disabling mental conditions, such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, phobias, and others.

ESAs have become increasingly popular in recent years and although they tend to be dogs or cats in most cases, they are not limited by any specific species and technically could be any animal. These furry friends provide unconditional love, affection, emotional support, and comfort which is critical to their owner’s daily functioning as well as their capacity to handle life’s challenges. We help make their presence possible with patients to provide mental health benefits by relieving stress, providing joy and companionship, making people calmer, and minimizing the negative symptoms of their condition.

The Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) and the Fair Housing Act provide ESA owners certain rights. These privileges apply in the context of two situations where pets may not typically be permitted, or even outlawed: housing and air travel.

This legislation enables certified emotional support animals to travel on planes (in the passenger cabin) with their owners. In addition, landlords and housing providers must accept individuals and their animal, even in cases of pet-free buildings or rented apartments, without any extra fee or pet security deposit.

In order to receive this designation in a legal way, the person must have a verifiable disability. The pet must be prescribed by a licensed mental health professional, such as a therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist.

An ESA letter is a formal doctor’s note which states that the presence of the pet mitigates symptoms of that disability and is necessary for the patient’s mental health and wellbeing.
This official document with the professional’s letterhead acknowledges that the person has been prescribed an ESA. However, without such a letter, neither commercial airlines nor landlords are legally obligated to let your therapy animal in.

The prescription letter can be obtained either by visiting a licensed mental health professional’s clinic for a one-on-one evaluation or by using an online service, in cases where visiting a healthcare provider is either unaffordable or impractical.
