Does my ESA need a vest?
A person who is assisted by an Emotional Support Animal must have a correctly formatted letter from a licensed mental health professional. That’s all. The ESA letter must state that the animal’s handler has an emotional or psychological disability identified in the DSM V and that the animal helps mitigate specific symptoms of the handler’s disability. The letter is all that is required.
To reiterate, however, an ESA vest made of a brightly-colored fabric, such as red or orange will help identify your pet as an Emotional Support Animal.
It is NOT required.
