As you now know, I recently took my dog Chelsea on herfirst plane ride. Before leaving, I had to acquire an emotional support animal letter for flying and have a medical professional fill out a form given to me directly by the airline. This is a new requirement for many airlines which allow you to bring emotional support animals and service animals on flights.
Of course, I waited until the very last minute and needed to find a doctor online who offered a 24-hour turnaround. I also didn’t want to get screwed over by paying for an ESA letter only to learn that it’s not legitimate once I got to the airport. Apparently, that’s a common problem with these kinds of services.
