There are individuals who are tired of taking medicines, visiting doctors, undergoing the tedious process from appointment to medicines, but still not getting the desired outcomes. This is since they do not believe in the power of emotional support animal. However, these support animals are the best companions for people suffering from loneliness, depression and also from some kind of disability.
What is an emotional support animal letter?
Animals are not allowed to be taken everywhere, and people who are getting much benefit from the company of the emotional support animal may not get the proper care they should get due to discriminative policies for entry of animals at several places. The emotional support animal letter are nothing but the written request from the physician or the mental health expert stating the disability of the person seeking the emotional support animal(ESA) and also that he/she is benefitted from such ESA.
There should be a reasonable ground to believe that such emotional support animal assist the disabled person in one way or the other.
With respect to the housing “no pet” policy
Some landlords keep a strict ‘no pet’ policy while giving their house on rent. Although they are forced to give rebate with respect to such ’no pet’ policy due to the Emotional support animal letter issued by a mental health expert to those suffering from some kind of disability or anything stated in the letter. The reason for keeping such restrictions on pets is that the owner of the houses tends to think that the prices of the house might fall due to the continuous sound and nuisance caused by the emotional support animal. Also, they feel that it might lead to dissatisfaction among the other tenants as to why some are allowed to keep the pets with them while they were not. They may insist on getting these animals trained (although it is not mandatory) such that they get the basic behavioral manners. No matter what, after getting the Emotional support animal letter, they are forced to allow the patient to keep the pet with him/her. Also, certain relaxation is offered to the landlord i.e. if such exception to the no pet policy causes some extra burden to the owner, he may or may not allow keeping such emotional support pet.
To travel in air with the emotional support animal
The airlines permit the patient to carry their emotional support animal with them only if they are provided with the emotional support animal letter prescribing the emotional support animal for the health of the client. Some passengers, who do not have any kind of mental disability, often try to bring their pets with them in the airline and claim them to be the emotional support animal. To avoid such kind of things, the airlines do not allow the entry of any animal inside until they get the documentation claiming the pet to be an emotional support animal.
Emotional support animals are of huge benefit to those suffering from any kind of health issue as isolation, depression and the best thing is getting the emotional support animal letter is not a tedious task at all. One just need to fulfill some formalities and the validation does not take much time as there are only a few persons suffering from mental disability who seek to live with these ESA’s and to travel with them. Also such emotional support animals are not required to wear some kind of uniform or identity mark. All that is needed is a valid certificate stating the need of an ESA.
