Like your medical checkup, your emotional support animal letter must be reissued after expiration.
- Letters are valid for twelve months and travel forms require a therapeutic care session within 30 days of departure.
- Receiving an emotional support animal letter is not guaranteed. You’re purchasing clinical care time to assess, verify, and treat your disability-related need for an assistance animal. When appropriate, you’re issued an emotional support animal letter of recommendation. Though not often, additional sessions may be required and can be procured directly from the clinician.
Our process from year to year is the same, unfortunately there are no shortcuts.
Housing providers and airlines may have the right to ask for a regularly updated emotional support animal letter. Outdated letters may result in the rejection of your animal's ESA status, possibly resulting in an accommodation denial.
In the end, without a valid emotional support animal letter, your animal loses its protections granted under Federal law, which can result in lots of embarrassment and hassle for you.
Our renewal service includes a comprehensive mental/medical health intake exam, video therapeutic care sessions, and a renewed emotional support animal letter.
These services can also be directly procured from your existing clinician.
