Need a Doctor’s Letter for Housing?
In order to prove that an animal is an emotional support animal, you may be asked to provide documentation from a licensed professional (doctor, psychiatrist, or other mental health professional) stating that the animal is an essential part of treatment for a disability. A landlord or business may ask you to provide a doctor’s note or they could deny you and your emotional support animal.
Regardless of whether you are asked to show a doctor’s letter, it is very helpful to have one on file just in case.
