Welcome to America’s All-in-one Online Solution for Approving Emotional Support Animals.

At The DOGtor we have simplified the process for persons with emotional/mood disorders to obtain their Emotional Support Animal paperwork online in the comfort of their own home. We understand how tedious things can be when trying to see your therapist or primary care physician in your quest for an ESA, only to get denied because they either do not believe in Emotional Support Animal therapy or are simply not setup with the proper patient verification system to accommodate your everyday needs as an ESA owner. Nevertheless, you can rest assured knowing that our network of licensed physicians all believe in the merits of emotional support animals and have no problem prescribing an ESA to those in need. Whether you are trying to fly in a commercial aircraft with your support animal or are needing to overturn a “no-pet” policy in your residence, you have come to the right place. We have been able to help thousands of patients qualify over the years and we are ready to help you.

The Fair Housing Act and the Air Carrier Access act enable “no-pet” policies to be overturned in order to provide patients with a reasonable accommodation in housing or when flying on commercial aircraft, provided that a licensed medical professional states in a letter that the patient needs an ESA as part of his or her treatment.

By taking our brief, yet comprehensive online medical exam, you can qualify for an ESA within 24-48 hours and finally put the stress of “no-pet” policies behind you. Being able to enjoy your life again is the first step in healing and getting back to being “you” again. We are confident in saying that having a pet to help you cope with your emotional/mood disorder is one of the most powerful prescriptions for happiness without the unwanted side-effects of traditional medication. So what are you waiting for? If you have established to have at least one of the many qualifying conditions in your online exam, you can rest assured knowing that one our licensed medical doctors will be willing to write you a prescription.

How It Works

  • Complete Online Exam

    All individuals seeking an Emotional Support Animal prescription must complete an online medical examination consisting of 74 questions. It takes anywhere from 15 – 20 minutes to complete so please make sure that you are ready to fill it out and move forward, since you won’t be able to save your exam and come back to it later.

    You can begin the exam by clicking on the “online medical exam”tab located in the main navigation
    menu or by clicking the “get started now” tab below.

  • Make Payment

    Potential patients should keep in mind that if the evaluating medical doctor does not feel comfortable writing you a prescription for an emotional support animal, then you will receive a same-day refund. Refunds are granted only to those who are not approved by the evaluating physician.

    After completing your online exam you will be required to make a payment and choose a treatment plan that best applies to you. If you need an ESA letter for housing, please choose the housing plan. The entry level housing plan is called the “care plan” and is 159.00. If you need a letter only for travel, then please choose the travel plan for 149.00. If you need documentation for both, you will need to select the Compassion Plan for 199.00, which will cover both travel and housing. Regardless, you must submit payment at that time or your exam will not be processed.

  • The DOGtor Reviews Your Exam

    The Dogtor reviews your exam & you’ll receive a notification within 48 hours if approved or not. Approval is typically the same day on a normal work week. In the event that the Dogtor needs to do a further evaluation he may want to speak to you over Skype. However, it’s very rare.

  • You’ve Been Approved!

    All individuals who have submitted an online exam will hear back from the evaluating physician within 24-48 hours. The doctor will email you from this or her personal email address to the email address that you have on file, so please make sure to check spam folders and wait patiently for the correspondence from the M.D. A doctor may ask you more questions about your exam so please be prepared to provide further details if they want more info in order for them to make an informed decision. Usually these questions are about asking for more clarity or that you have been vague in answering a specific question.

    As stated in Step 3, if the doctor does not approve you, you will receive a same-day refund. However, in the event that you are approved, you will receive your emailed PDF copy of the prescription letter typically on the same day. You will also receive a courtesy hard copy that will be mailed to the address that you have on file when taking the online exam. The hard copy take a few business days to arrive, depending on where you are located in the USA.
