An ESA can provide a great amount of psychological and emotional support to its owner. This is a general benefit of keeping an affectionate, cuddly, and loyal animal as a pet. However, ESAs be it an ESA dog, an ESA fish, an ESA cat, etc are also specifically used to provide emotional stability and strength to mentally and emotionally disturbed people. The emotional stability provided by the ESAs is used by the health care providers as a part of treatment for mental illnesses. They prescribe ESAs to mentally and emotionally suffering patients using an emotional support animal letter. This is done once a patient having some mental issues asks for their opinion on their mental health.
After the healthcare professional completes his or her assessment and finds out that the person must get an ESA to stay emotionally supported, the professional write the letter of recommendation. This letter called the ESA letter is the only required legal document for owners with mental disabilities to own an ESA.
After the doctor recommends the ESA, then it is up to the patient to choose whatever animal he or she wishes to keep as an ESA. Once an animal has been specified to be an ESA, some special training steps can be taken to make it more competitive as an ESA. Although an ESA has just to give emotional support to the owner and does not need to perform any specific activity. However, to enhance the emotional supportive capabilities of the ESA, the steps that can be taken are explored in this article.
Before getting into the details of the training steps, let us take a moment and get to know the basic two rights of an ESA. An ESA has two basic rights which can not be denied by anyone either a person or an organization.
The first and foremost right provisioned under the fair housing society act is that the owner can keep the ESA with him/ her in his residential apartment, room, house, even if the landlord denies this, or asks for the additional rent, even then the owner does not need to be afraid of the landlord. The on;y requirement is to have a legit esa letter for housing.
