An Emotional Support Animal (ESA) is an animal that is prescribed to an individual as part of a treatment or therapy to help person cope with psychological or emotional disabilities. An Emotional Support Dog is often prescribed by a physician or therapist to help the individual with their treatment. Emotional Support Dog’s are more often the norm than other animals like cats.
An emotional support animal that is prescribed by a physician will have the rights of an ESA according to the Fair Housing Act and Air Carrier Access Act. An emotional support dog will help mitigate emotional and mood related symptoms that a patient normally can’t handle on their own without the emotional support dog.
