Proof of Disability In Written Form
You will need to have this proof in written form on a properly formatted prescription letter. In most cases, a medical doctor will not qualify to provide you with proof because they are not a licensed mental health professional. However, some airlines and property managers accept a verification form completed by your physician.
The letter should state that you getting treatment for a mental disability found in the DSM IV or V. The doctor prescribes you an emotional support animal as a form of necessary treatment for your mental health.
The letter should have the date, on the doctor’s letterhead, include his or her license type, number, date of license and the state where the license is issued.
