You and I both know the emotional support offered by an animal companion is no great secret. These days more and more doctors are also acknowledging the therapeutic benefit that pets can play in treating psychological and emotional problems with their patients.
In order to qualify for a Canadian emotional support animal travel letter of recommendation, you must be certified as emotionally disabled by a licensed and certified mental health professional such as a psychiatrist or therapist.
That’s where we can help you!
Emotional Support Dog or Cat for Travel to/From Canada
You can request an emotional support animal letter in-person with your therapist or online using an ESA service.
It’s important to remember not all medical professionals are legally qualified to write an ESA letter. Only certified mental health professionals are able to write an emotional support animal letter. If you request one using an online service, make sure that it follows all ESA regulations.
