DO I NEED TO GO TO A DOCTOR TO GET AN EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMAL?

“Do I need to go to a doctor to get an emotional support animal?” This is an important question you might ask if you want to certify your pet as an emotional support animal. Just how exactly do you go about doing that? By now, you probably understand that getting an emotional support animal can be simple. However, it is not as simple as calling your pet an “emotional support animal” just because they provide you with emotional support and comfort.

Instead, you must must obtain an emotional support animal letter in order to legally certify your pet.

Today, we want to briefly focus on one crucial step that all pet owners must go through if they want to certify their pet as an emotional support animal.

The Approval of a Licensed Physician

Many people believe that they have to go to their doctor’s office in order to begin the process of certification. If not their doctor, then surely they are required to physically go to a mental health professional’s office in order certify their pet and obtain an emotional support animal letter. Right?

The answer is NO.

You do not have to physically go to a doctor’s or even a therapist’s office. You can start there but there are some disadvantages to going to an office in person that you should be aware of.

For one, going to a doctor’s office takes time. It takes time out of your day to actually go there. It often takes up even more of your time sitting in the waiting room. Not only that, there is also the task that speaking a doctor often entails. Contrary to popular belief, doctors do not always have your best interests at heart. A lot of times they largely play the role of “salesman in white coats” for the big pharmaceutical companies.

So if you were to go to your doctor’s office and tell them that you wanted to make your pet an emotional support animal to help with some sort of mental or emotional hardship, who’s to say that they wouldn’t discourage you and just try to prescribe you some pills? It’s a strong possibility. Also, let’s not forget about the hidden fees. Since this is a newly emerging form of alternative therapy, a visit to the doctor’s office could bring with it hidden fees down the road.

And finally comes time in between. When you physically go to a doctor or therapist’s office to begin the certification process, the speed at which they work can oftentimes best be described as glacial. They may give excuses and tell you to “think about it.” They may outright tell you “no.” But ultimately, they can make you feel like you have very little power over your choice of treatment.
