Hello, I'd like to help you with your question.

Are you looking for a card to certify that your animal is a service animal?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes, I am looking for a letter from a Doctor that states - I need my dog for emotional support.

Without her I will fall apart

She is all I have right now

Thanks for the additional information.

If you have registered your dog as an emotional support animal through an agency like and you have papers and an I.D. for the animal, you should have no trouble asking a physician, even a general practitioner, for a letter stating that you can take the animal anywhere with you. If you are asking for someone on Just Answer to write a prescription, that is not possible. Any doctor writing a script must do so face to face with a person who needs the script. But otherwise, it should be a simple process for you to have a doctor to write you a letter once they see the registration.

I hope this helps you,
