Emotional Support Animals

Approximately 40 million Americans have mental health disorders. For most, these disorders are mild and treated with therapy and other coping mechanisms. For others, the issues are more complex and require medications. Anxiety, depression, PTSD, anti-social behavior, and many other illnesses afflict people of all walks of life, gender, ethnicity or socioeconomic level. In short, mental health disorders can impact anyone and many of us are in need of emotional support in some shape or form. 

Many years ago, individuals who suffered from these disorders were often institutionalized, and treatments could range from nothing to the inhumane. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of mental health pioneers in the early 1900s, those who could not advocate for themselves found themselves thrust to the forefront of a burgeoning field of study, psychiatry. Since that time, many new and revolutionary treatments have emerged. Advancements in medication and therapy have helped move individuals who would have once been removed from society to being able to live and work on their own, often with little to no assistance. 

Though mental health and the many disorders that can impact a person’s behavior was once thought of as a punishment for some hidden sin, we now know that is not the case. Many things can affect a person’s mental function such as heredity, chemical imbalances, environmental issues, stress, and terrifying incidents. With the focus now on helping individuals instead of blaming them, the negative connotation that once hindered individuals from talking about their conditions has slowly changed. Additionally, we also now know that not all disorders require strong medications. Some patients have been significantly helped with alternative therapies such as companionship. 

Using their understanding of service animals and how they’ve helped patients with physical disabilities, Mental Health Practitioners created a new treatment method for patients who were suffering from depression; therapy dogs. These dogs have been successfully used in schools, nursing homes and hospitals for many years. While it was common practice for mental health providers to suggest their patients, who had emotional issues get a pet, there was no defined medical category or even basic protections for their inclusion in a patient’s life. After many years of witnessing the positive effects of these animals, practitioners lobbied for the addition of animals who were not pets but a new mode of treatment in our laws. These Emotional Support Animals (ESAs), as they were called, finally became recognized by American Laws. 

Although these animals do not have the same protections as that of service or psychiatric dogs, laws were enacted to help ensure patients who had emotional disorders would have access during times that could be the most stressful; work, housing, and travel.

 

What animals qualify as ESAs?

Unlike service animals, emotional support animals are not limited to dogs. They can be any commonly domesticated animal including ESA cats, birds, and Guinea pigs. Exotic or wild animals are prohibited due to endangering others and damage to property.

 

Traveling With Your Animal

ESA
Know your rights and responsibilities.

The Air Carrier Access Act (ACA) established a set of rules to allow emotional support animals to be transported in the cabin with their disabled owners. To qualify, patients must supply the appropriate documentation, and the animal must not pose a danger to others or interfere with other passengers or personnel. Although emotional support animals can be any domesticated animals, airlines have the right to refuse in-cabin transportation to any “unusual” animal including snakes, and other reptiles. Unfortunately, due to recent reports of abuse, additional requirements may have been implemented by individual carriers including the use of kennels. Before traveling, passengers should contact their specific airline in advance to ensure all needs are met.

Unfortunately, at this time traveling with an emotional support animal outside of America is not easy. Each country has its own set of guidelines and may not accept ESAs as anything more than a pet. Before traveling abroad, patients should do their homework and contact the foreign airline as well as the State Department and Embassy in the host country. 

 

Required documentation to travel with your pet

All US-based airlines require a letter to prove an individual’s need for an emotional support animal. This ESA letter must be dated within the year and be from a licensed mental health professional. Attestation to the patient’s mental health-related disability (though it isn’t required to disclose the exact diagnosis) and statements that the animal’s presence is necessary to the passenger’s mental health or to assist the passenger are necessary. It should also include the provider’s type of professional license, and date of issue from the state or jurisdiction they practice. 

How to obtain an ESA letter for travel

Generally, individuals who wish to get an emotional support letter for travel have already been diagnosed with a disorder such as depression or PTSD. During a visit to your provider, the patient will need to discuss this need with the provider. Because ESA travel letters require specific information, it is helpful if your doctor is not only supportive but understands this process. Several websites are available that can help ensure your provider. However, despite advertisements, no website that advertises ESA letters without providing medical care can issue a valid certification. 

What to do once you have your ESA letter?

Call Mango Clinic to avoid paying a pet fee for your ESA

Patients who benefit from emotional support animals must be sure their animals can behave responsibly during any trip and especially while on the airplane. Take the time to familiarize your companion with traveling and being around many people. They must be trained to not react aggressively towards other passengers or airline personnel. Growling, biting, and scratching other people is prohibited. At any time during your trip, if your animal misbehaves, the airlines can revoke ESA rights and change the status of the animal to that of a pet resulting in fines or pet transportation costs.

Once you have planned your trip, be sure to contact the airline you are traveling with. Each airline can have additional requirements that must be completed as well as approving your documentation. Once everything is complete, contact should again be made at least 48 hours in advance of travel to ensure that there are no additional items needed.

Emotional support animals are an essential part of care for some individuals who have been diagnosed with emotional disorders. While these animals have not been included in the ADA (American’s with Disabilities Act) like service dogs, they are just as crucial to the patients they help. Making sure that any travel is conducted respectfully will help ensure that ESAs are welcomed by the airlines for years to come.

ESA-Letter-From-Get-ESA-Review.jpg

Getting an emotional support animal can be a weird situation for some; getting an emotional support animal letter can be even harder. It can be confusing, especially with how many websites there are that claim to offer a real ESA letter. Mango Clinic wants to make sure everyone who is looking to get an ESA letter is not scammed or prevented from getting a legitimate piece of documentation.

What Is An Emotional Support Animal?

Some people can treat their health ailments and conditions with medication, therapy, and even home remedies. However, this is not the case for everyone, and it can be very difficult for some people to recover. In some of these cases, people go for alternative treatment options, as these can often be very helpful for someone who has not found success elsewhere.

One of the most popular and recommended forms of alternative treatment is getting an emotional support animal. In some cases, you do not have to go get an ESA because you already own a pet that you can designate as such. This is because an ESA does not have to be anything specific, nor does an ESA need to be specially trained. The only thing an ESA needs to be is a comfort to their owner; this means that the pet in question makes their owner feel so much better when in their presence. A pet qualifies as an ESA if, for example, they make their owners feel safe and comfortable when they might otherwise not be without them.

Since a pre-existing pet can qualify to be your ESA, many of them are likely to be a dog or a cat. Indeed, cats and dogs are the most common ESA choices, even if the person does not already own a pet to make their ESA. This can make many people think that an ESA must always be a dog, never mind a cat. This belief is further proliferated by online websites and the existence of service dogs. However, animals as different as pigs and snakes can qualify, as long as the animal in question is domesticated and not a danger to others.

What is GetESA?

There are many scam ESA sites online that are primarily aimed at robbing you of your money. Many of these sites follow the same patterns so that if you have seen many of them before, they will be easy to recognize when you come across them.

While they are not as obvious as other sites, GetESA.com still demonstrates the things that make a website suspicious at best and a scam at worst. Their low price of $99 a year for a housing or travel letter is a good first indicator, as businesses that sell legitimate ESA services don’t really sell documents at that price range.

The more obvious thing is something else that can be found on the homepage if you scroll down a little bit. Listed under “Three Simple Steps,” Get ESA outlines their process by stating that all you have to do is “Complete The Online Exam” followed by “Doctor Reviews Exam” and finally “Receive ESA Letter.” This sort of process is something many similar sites state, and it can usually be the only proof you need that the site should not be trusted. This is because, in order for a real ESA letter to be valid, you must speak directly with a licensed physician. Nowhere does it explicitly state you will be doing so on Get ESA’s website.

A few other things that can point to an illegitimate site include the lack of a physical address on the homepage. Even clicking on the “Contact Us” or “About Us” pages shows no address, only an email, phone number, and working hours. There is also a sole social media link to their Twitter page, which seems to consist only of reviews for the business, of which there are multiple per week.

One last thing is their mention of ESA ID cards. This is somewhat notable, if only because ID cards are not needed, necessary, or helpful when getting a real ESA letter. Many of these scam sites try to sell you things like ID cards, but other sites are big on selling you more unnecessary junk, like vests, none of which are needed for ESAs. Patients say that Getesa.com is operated by the same people as mmjdoctoronline.com/esa which is known for selling fake medical marijuana cards.

GetESA.com Scam

If you already have an emotional support animal, then you have likely heard of emotional support animal letters. Their importance and necessity can vary from person to person, but for the most part, they are very valuable to have. In many ways, it’s the best way to validate your pet as being an ESA. However, it should be said right now that you do not simply get a letter for your ESA that designates them as such. The only real designation an ESA ever needs is their owner saying so; the letters, therefore, provide a different benefit.

The main purpose behind having a real ESA letter is for when you need one for housing or travel. If you live in a residential complex that may not otherwise allow pets, an ESA letter for housing can permit you to live with your pet. Where landlords might charge you additional fees or kick you out, an ESA housing letter would let you stay without any trouble. What’s more, this document would make it illegal for your landlord to charge you more or kick you out. Do not buy fake ESA letters from GetESA to avoid this issues, check for a legitimate doctor.

As for an ESA travel letter, it lets you board airplanes without having to pay an additional fee or put your pet in cargo. This is probably the most popular among the two types of documents, as more people need to explain their ESA situation when they have to travel. It allows patients to comfortably fly with their pets without having to be hassled or bothered by airlines. All the same, it is always recommended to tell an airline ahead of time about your ESA.

Many of online ESA services are just too good to be true.

Can I get a Real ESA Letter From Get ESA? Is It Legit?

Their website might be clean and straightforward, but due to their steps for attaining a document, along with a few other details, we cannot recommend Get ESA. They seem to be trying hard to make sure they do not come off as suspicious, but by following the same pattern of more obvious scam sites, they end up being just as untrustworthy.

When it comes to finding a genuine source for an emotional support animal letter, it can be challenging. There are many online resources, but not all of them can be trusted. Thankfully, Mango Clinic can provide potential patients with a genuine ESA letter that they can use for travel, housing, or both. We want to make sure our patients have the best options available to them, which is why we also look at other sites to let you know how they are and if they are legitimate.

What Is An Emotional Support Animal?

Some people have health disorders or ailments that traditional forms of medicine do not always treat effectively. Not everyone will have the same reaction to the same drugs as others, which is part of the reason why so many drug types exist. However, it can be much harder for others to adjust and recover from their ailments or disorder. Some people need a different form of treatment if they are expected to recover happily and healthily.

For some people, an emotional support animal can provide the right amount of treatment for them. Unlike a service animal or even a therapy pet, an emotional support animal is nothing more than an animal that you may already have as a pet. If you own a pet, they make you feel better, and you can’t bear to be without them, they might qualify as an emotional support animal.

What Is An Emotional Support Animal Certification?

An ESA certification is a document that confirms that your pet, be it a dog, cat, rabbit, bird, or any other domesticated animal, qualifies as your therapy pet. With this document, you and your animal companion can live in a home, such as a residential complex, without having to pay any additional fees or risk being kicked out.

An ESA letter can also help you when you are planning to go on a trip, such as a flight. It is very easy for people to think they can bring their pets with them on a flight, only to be rejected or hit with expensive fees. Sometimes they are barred from boarding, other times they must put their pet in cargo. With this document, airlines will not be allowed to dismiss you and your animal companion, especially if you let the airline know ahead of time.

CertaPet.com Review?

When it comes to getting an emotional support animal letter, there are many sites online that claim to offer the service either quickly or at a noticeable discount. Figuring out whether one of these sites is legitimate or not can be tricky if you do not know what to look out for.

CertaPet is among the most popular and easily accessible websites for getting an ESA letter. According to their homepage, you can get a “Letter You Can Trust For Less Than $1/Day,” a very bold claim. As far as we can tell, this just means that the letter in question will cost you less than a dollar a day were you to pay for it daily.

The home page—where most of the info you need is located—talks about how they are “The Most Trusted ESA Letter Service Online,” which, by the looks of their website, is likely to be true. They also mention how they are “Compliant with Federal and State Laws” and feature “Real Licensed Mental Health Professionals.” The homepage also features pictures of people with their ESAs (almost exclusively dogs), including pictures of a few of the staff who run the site.

The one other notable thing that can be found on the homepage is the “Fast, Simple and Secure” process which details how you would get an ESA letter. According to CertaPet, it is a three-step process: a “Free 5-Minute Online Pre-Screening,” followed by a “15-Minute Mental Health Professional Online Consultation,” which results in you receiving your letter.

One more thing to note is that the homepage contains many buttons which state “Get Started with a Free Pre-Screening Now.” Pressing this button will take you to a new page that, as the text states, has you do a pre-screening, which is made up of questions that take you a mere few minutes to answer. Once you have responded to these questions, the website will let you know whether you qualify or not, providing you the option to reserve time with a therapist immediately. Presumably, after this therapist consultation, is when you will receive your letter.

Is CertaPet Legit?

Among the many ESA websites that are all across the internet, CertaPet might be the most legitimate-looking. Their website is stacked with helpful information, blog posts, and even photographs of real people and not just stock images. They also have a provided phone number, physical address, and social media links. Additionally, they do not want to sell you anything more than the ESA letter; this is an interesting distinction, as many other ESA sites will try to sell you vests and packages with things you do not need.

However, in order to make sure your ESA letter is as legitimate as can be, you must speak directly with a licensed doctor. After speaking with them, this same doctor will write and sign your letter for you, thus making it completely official. If you do not speak directly with a doctor, who will then be able to write your letter for you, your letter can be claimed as illegitimate.

Why Choose Mango Clinic?

While CertaPet does appear to provide genuine service for people wanting to get an ESA letter, there is a lack of evidence proving that you will speak directly with a licensed doctor. For this reason, we are reluctant to recommend them for your ESA needs.

With Mango Clinic, we make sure each patient speaks with a licensed physician who can write a legitimate ESA letter. Our staff of doctors will be able to evaluate you in person or over the phone, making it easier than ever to get a genuine ESA document that you can use for housing or travel.

What Is An Emotional Support Cat?

For some people, it’s not easy to go about a regular day the same as others. On some days, it can be incredibly difficult for a person to get through their day. Even if they do not show it, some people could use assistance to get through their issues. While medication and traditional forms of therapy can help, some people respond better to alternative forms of treatment. One of these alternative forms of treatment is having an emotional support animal. Unlike most types of treatment, this one involves a lot of patient decision making, as they are the ones choosing the animal best for them. In most cases, a person may already have a pet that they want to make their ESA, and they just need to get an ESA letter. In this article, we will talk about the emotional support animal cat breeds.

The role of an ESA is nothing more than providing comfort for the owner in such a way that the owner’s mood is improved significantly when with their pet. If a person has severe anxiety but feel almost no anxiety when with their pet, then it counts as an ESA. This also means the pet can have a letter to back it up in housing and travel situations.

Mango Clinic can provide patients with an officially signed and dated letter. The letter is signed by a licensed doctor who you speak directly with, ensuring the full legality and validity of the document in question. In this way, you will never have to worry about having your ESA letter questioned for authenticity by a landlord or airline.

Top 5 Emotional Support Cat Breeds

ESA pets and their protections
Know your Emotional Support Animal rights

Cats are among the most popular animals on the planet, which also makes them highly recommendable as emotional support animals. Known for having a stoic, non-judgemental, and mischievous attitude, cats can be an immense comfort for many patients. We want to keep you informed with the best types of breeds out there for cats so that you can make the best choice for you when choosing your ESA. No breed is better than the other, but some people do better with some breeds than others. In this way, you can have an idea for the different breeds that exist and determine if these or others are best for you.

Siamese

Siamese ESA Cat

One of the more famous cats out there, the Siamese are known for being very playful and social, which can sometimes be in contrast to how most cats are. They are known for loving affection and attention, as well as wanting to engage in social activities with their owners. This makes Siamese a good choice for those who want an ESA that they can engage with on a physical level.

Sometimes a Siamese will even choose a favorite family member and be upset if they are left alone for too long. This can be good for owners who want to spend a lot of time with their ESA, as a Siamese is more than happy to keep you company. If you plan on leaving your cat alone for periods of time, having a second Siamese can alleviate this issue.

Bengal

Bengal ESA Cat

Famous for looking very much like a wild cat (such as an ocelot), the Bengal is known for being among the more active and energetic cat breeds. If you are interested in an ESA that will keep you active and want to engage in some physical activities, a Bengal might be for you. Of course, they can still be very affectionate and are known for being intelligent. They’re even known to be okay with water (including swimming), something cats are not usually known for.

Russian Blue

Russian Blue ESA Cat

This cat breed is known for often being shy and quiet, along with having shorter hair but also possibly more shedding than other breeds. The Russian Blue gets its name from the color and style of its fur, as it is dark grey but can appear blue. For those that want an ESA that likes to attach itself to just one person and keep things nice and calm, a Russian Blue can be ideal. This is especially true for those who would instead take it easy and not do anything out of their comfort zone, as Russian Blues are very similar in that regard.

Persian

Persian ESA Cat

Persian cats are among the most famous and iconic breeds out there. Much of this has to do with them being well-known as quiet and calm cats, ones who would rather be pampered than doing anything strenuous. Their fame also has much to do with their looks, as they are among the more unique breeds for having a very unique and recognizable appearance.

Persian cats are also known for being more high maintenance than other brands, and this is reflected in their very fluffy appearance. They have to be groomed and taken care of more so than other breeds, but many owners believe that their unique personalities make it worth it.

Maine Coon ESA Cat

Maine Coon

Maine Coons are among the largest breeds out there, often comparable to dogs. Originating in North America, these are popular cats in cold weather locations, due to the breed being full of fur. This, of course, means that they need to be groomed almost daily. They are also among the friendliest and social breeds, making them suitable for people who want a cat that will make them go out and interact with the world.

Getting an emotional support cat is one of the best things that can happen to a person needing treatment for a health disorder. If you want to make sure you have an ESA letter and that it’s legit, get in touch with Mango Clinic. Call us on 786-391-0269 or visit our website to schedule your appointment with one of our licensed physicians.

Emotional Support Animal Letter from ESADoctors.com REVIEW

In this article, we continue the series of our reviews on different online ESA services. This post discusses whether getting an Emotional Support Animal Letter from ESADoctors.com is a good idea.

What is an Emotional Support Animal?

Everyone gets a pet for all kinds of reasons, and there’s always a variety of what animals people choose to adopt. Whether you enjoy playing fetch with your dog, snuggling up with your cat, letting your rabbit roam your home, or going out with your snake, everyone has a preferred animal they enjoy having as a pet. They become a part of your family, and everyone enjoys the company they provide. In many aspects, these animals provide you with comfort and calmness that can’t be matched.

If you deal with an emotional or mental disorder, then you understand how essential your companion is to you. They are so much more than just a pet; they’re your best friend, and they provide you with love and affection that nothing else can come close to replicating. In these cases, you might consider them an emotional support animal, someone who you want to accompany you wherever you go. However, it can sometimes be challenging to have your ESA with you, as some establishments don’t allow animals. This is why ESA letters exist: they allow you to bring your companion into residential complexes that otherwise don’t allow pets, as well as airlines that would make things extra difficult. If you do not have a proper ESA letter, an airline can make you put your animal in cargo, or you may be charged a fee.

Mango Clinic Miami can ensure that you receive a genuine ESA letter that’s approved by our certified doctors. We understand how important it is for you to be with your ESA, which is why we’re able to help clients that come in needing the proper documentation. You don’t want to get into situations where you might be separated from your animal companion. If you’re looking for a legitimate place for getting a valid ESA letter, you can come to Mango Clinic.

Is ESADoctors.com Legit?

ESADoctors Scam

For these reasons, we like to look at other sites that claim to provide ESA letters and see if they’re in any way legit. If you considered getting an Emotional Support Animal Letter from ESADoctors.com, beware, as ESADoctors.com is one of these types, and like many others, their services and what they provide are not genuine.

One of the big red flags that ESADoctors.com is illegitimate is that their information regarding who can “approve” you is not consistent. In one part of the site, they state that you’ll be in touch “easily and privately” with a therapist who can approve you for a letter. But elsewhere, it states that their “team of mental health professionals” will see if you qualify by looking over the questionnaire you filled out. What’s worse is that these two different pieces of information can be found on the same page!

On top of that, you still need to pay after filling out the questionnaire but before having your information looked over by “someone.” One other thing of note that may escape notice is their contact information. They don’t have an actual address on their site, which is a major red flag for a place that’s supposed to staff physicians and provide medical services. Any business that can provide you with a real ESA letter will have a physical location staffed by healthcare professionals. Additionally, there is no actual contact info to be found on their site; only a contact form where you give your name, email, and a message. This same page says that they have “customer support representatives ready to take your questions,” which is odd for a site that has no direct email address to contact, phone number, or hours of operation listed.

How Does ESADoctors.org Compare to Mango Clinic?

Qualifying Patients

To qualify on ESADoctors.com, you merely have to fill out a questionnaire, which is then “looked over” by “doctors” who can approve you to have an ESA. It makes no mention of speaking with a doctor in any way to get your letter.

At Mango Clinic, we have you speak with one of our doctors so that they can assess your medical condition and see if you qualify. This is the only legal way you can get a real ESA letter, and it can be done via Telehealth, which, in the state of Florida, allows you speak with a medical professional via video chat or over the phone.

Cost of an Emotional Support Animal Letter

ESADoctors.com offers three packages that are $149 (travel), $159 (housing), and $189 (combo). However, since their website isn’t legitimate, these are just easy ways to scam you of your money. Additionally, the language they use makes it seem as if there exist two separate letters for housing and travel. In reality, if you decide to cover both housing and travel, it will still be just one letter.

Mango Clinic has letters that range from $129 (housing), $149 (travel), and $189 (both). The major difference is that our letters are completely genuine; you must be approved by a qualified medical professional to receive a letter from our clinic. And whether you decide on just housing, travel, or both, you’ll receive one letter that you can use in those instances.

ESADoctors.com Fake
These ‘officially looking’ web-sites would often charge you different prices for the same service

Getting an Emotional Support Animal Letter from ESADoctors.com

If you are getting an Emotional Support Animal Letter from ESADoctors.com, their website says that, once you’ve done the questionnaire, paid, and been approved, your letter will be sent in the mail within a few days. If you’re really getting an ESA letter, it’s never this easy.

ESADoctors.com Review BBBBBB ESADoctors Review

Mango Clinic makes sure things are done the right way. In order to receive a legally legitimate ESA letter, you must speak with one of our qualified doctors to assess you. This assessment can be done in person, but thanks to Florida allowing the use of Telehealth, you can also do a video chat or a phone call to talk with one of our doctors. Once your information and conditions have been discussed, and you’ve been approved, you can receive your letter either in-office, via email as PDF, or both.

What are the Guarantees?

At Mango Clinic, we have a 100% money-back guarantee. If your letter is not accepted for any reason, we will refund your money. Additionally, we can always be contacted if you have any questions.

So as you might expect, you do not want to get involved with obtaining your Emotional Support Animal Letter from ESADoctors.com. Their process of providing you an “ESA letter” is illegitimate and will result in you ending up with an invalid letter. Their main aim is to scam people unlucky enough to come across their website and think it’s the real deal.

Don’t ever fall for these sites by coming to Mango Clinic to get your genuine ESA letter. Call us at (786) 391-0269 or visit our webpage to schedule an appointment today.

Fake-ESA-Letter-From-RegisterServiceDogs.com_.jpg

In this installment, we will revisit our series of critical reviews on various online ESA services. This article focuses on why you shouldn’t get your Emotional Support Animal Letter from RegisterServiceDogs.com.

What is an Emotional Support Animal?

People who own pets know how valuable they can be to a single person or a whole family. We care for them, spend all our time with them, and eventually, they become much more to us than mere pets. This is also why so many people with close connections with their pets are more likely to see them as family members or best friends. And for some people, their beloved companions become emotional support animals who can help them get through the day in a way other forms of therapy cannot. For these reasons and more are why many consider their pets emotional support animals for mental disorders like anxiety and depression.

Emotional Support Animal

We at Mango Clinic Miami know that if you have a health or mental disorder, and you think you need another form of therapy, ESAs are an excellent option. Pets have already proven to be a well-loved source of joy for so many people, but some people have also found their companions to be of value to their mental health. Getting an ESA letter allows you to have your pet in residences that may otherwise not allow pets or would charge you an additional price for them. This letter also lets you take your pet with you on an airplane, instead of putting them in cargo or paying an extra fee. Without a legitimate ESA letter, you could get into unfortunate situations that can involve you not being able to take your pet with you on a trip.

Unfortunately, there are too many fraudulent websites out there that take advantage of people and their lack of understanding regarding ESA letters. These sites are designed to scam you out of your money, and we want to make sure you don’t fall for them by knowing some tell-tale signs.

Is RegisterServiceDogs.com Legit?

Let’s go over the process of getting an Emotional Support Animal Letter from RegisterServiceDogs.com. RegisterServiceDogs.com, also known under the new name USDogRegistry.org, is an example of one of these types of sites. The easiest way to know they’re a scam is in the name; the domains use the word “register” and “registry” respectively. You cannot register an emotional support animal, and thus, there exists no registry for them. You the owner are the one who needs to get a letter for yourself and include whichever pets you want to add as ESAs.

While the repeated use of the word “register” (and its variations) already proves its illegitimacy, there are other things on their site that support this. For one, they don’t provide ESA letters. What they do seem to provide are “kits” that contain a variety of useless things you don’t need, such as a dog tag, an ID card, and vest. As for what passes for a letter, these kits include “certificates of registration,” which are not at all valid and would not help you if you need to provide a letter to an airline or landlord. When you get an ESA letter, all you need is the letter and that’s it; anything additional is completely unnecessary. Any business that claims it can give you an ESA letter does not need to be giving you a complete kit featuring too many things, along with a false certificate.

Something else that is problematic is the website’s lack of a physical address and phone number. Any legitimate business, regardless of their service, should have a physical address and a good way to contact them. RegisterServiceDogs.com/USDogRegistry.org only features an email and a contact form, and these alone are not enough to make them a genuine service for getting an ESA letter. The lack of a physical location also makes them illegitimate because any place that can provide you with an ESA letter must have a facility where licensed physicians and staff are employed.

One more thing that you may not know about is how long these letters are usually valid. A real ESA letter needs to be renewed yearly, but according to USDogRegistry.org, your ESA “will be registered with the US Animal Registry” for as long as the ESA is alive. Just so you know: the US Animal Registry is not real. 

How Does RegisterServiceDogs.com Compare to Mango Clinic?

Qualifying Patients

As you apply for an ESA Letter from RegisterServiceDogs.com/USDogRegistry.org, they do not require you to fill out any kind of questionnaire for yourself. You have to fill out information pertaining to your pet, as well as anything you may want to add to your kit. This further proves that they don’t sell you a letter but a product that happens to contain a “certificate.” However, their FAQ does mention that, for ESAs, you need a doctor’s note. At the same time, they say you do not have to submit that note to them to get a kit.

At Mango Clinic, we make sure you speak with one of our qualified doctors, as this is the only way to get a real ESA letter. The doctor must evaluate you and determine whether your medical condition can approve you to have an ESA letter. Best of all, the regulations allow you to speak with a doctor via Telehealth communication, which means you can speak with them over the phone to assess your eligibility.

Cost of an Emotional Support Animal Letter from RegisterServiceDogs.com

Once again, if you want to obtain an actual ESA letter from RegisterServiceDogs.com/USDogRegistry.org, remember, it does not offer you one. Their kits start around $79 and can go up to $199; the only thing in the kits that can count as a “letter” is their “certificates.”

Mango Clinic has prices that range from $129 (housing), $149 (travel), and $189 (both). It may seem like a lot of money for just a letter (as opposed to a whole kit), but that’s because these are the real deal. These letters are legal and approved by certified medical professionals.

Getting a valid ESA letter is never as easy as getting an ESA letter from RegisterServiceDogs.com; there’s a reason for that.

You can even speak them via Telehealth since Florida allows you to speak with a doctor through video chat or a phone call.

What are the Guarantees?

As you continue through steps to acquire your Emotional Support Animal Letter from RegisterServiceDogs.com/USDogRegistry.org, you will find on their FAQ that there are “no refunds on the certificate and identification cards,” and absolutely no mention of a money-back guarantee. They do, however, have a return policy for its vests, in which they claim they will exchange it once if you contact them within 15 days of when your order was placed.

At Mango Clinic, we provide you with a 100% money-back guarantee, ensuring that if your letter is not accepted, you will be refunded. You can also always call us if you have any questions.

What Is An Emotional Support Animal?

There is a multitude of ways to get health products and services. In that same respect, many available forms of medication do not work for some people. While antidepressants are a viable and helpful supplement for some people’s therapy and recovery, these same drugs can have no effect on others. Worse, these drugs could possibly make some people feel worse as opposed to better. This is why alternative forms of medication and therapy exist, and these alternatives can sometimes be more effective than “traditional” forms of medicine.

Emotional support animals (ESAs) are one example of this, as they have been found to be extremely helpful for helping people. Those who have chosen to have support pets find themselves able to return to a life of normalcy and regularity that they had previously lost. Where before the drugs were not making them feel better, having an animal companion has brought hope, love, and motivation back into their lives. Since the company of the pet alone can help the person, an owner will feel compelled to spend as much time with their ESA as is possible.

This is also why emotional support animal letters are vital for owners. If you have a support animal and want to make sure they can be with you at all convenient times, an ESA letter is a must. This documentation makes looking for housing and going on trips much less stressful, as you will not have to worry about whether your ESA will be allowed or not. You also won’t have to worry about landlords charging you extra or airlines not letting you sit with your pet if you have a proper emotional support animal letter.

How to Identify an ESA Scam Site

While it is beneficial to have this documentation, you have to be careful of the various sites that claim to offer it. EzCare Clinic.com is a legitimate website for getting your ESA letter, as it features licensed doctors and a verifiable physical address. However, it’s very easy to search online and be tricked by scam sites who say they offer letters of the same validity. Many fraudulent sites take advantage of people who do not know better, so arming yourself with knowledge on what makes a scam site is valuable.Identifying Scam Sites

To start, don’t ever fall for a site that has the word “registry” in its name or anywhere on its site. There is no such thing as a registry for emotional support animals, and you never have to register your pet. Sites that liberally use this word may also offer information about service dogs, which promotes the idea that ESAs are similar. This is further instigated by selling gear for pets, which are almost always targeted towards dogs. Along with vests (which may say “emotional support animal” on them), they may also sell ID cards and tags, none of which is necessary.

A prevalent way to sell letters on these sites is to bundle them together with that useless gear. These are labeled as kits, and they contain, along with the letter, a vest, the tags, and a variety of other things which just make the price tag higher. It should always be remembered that you do not need any of this gear. If you claim a pet as your ESA, all you need is the letter; you do not also need accessories of identification.

As for getting one of these letters, the process on these sites appears to be reasonably straightforward. You usually only have to fill out a questionnaire, which is then sent to someone (or a group) who will look over it and will approve you from there. In reality, getting an ESA letter is not this easy, as you have to sit down and speak with a licensed doctor, either in-person or via telehealth communication. Many of these sites state that speaking with a doctor is not required; these same sites might mention that the doctor who gave their approval may contact you, but that it is not likely. A few of these sites might also say that their letters will never expire, but no official ESA letter anywhere has that guarantee, as they all last up to one year before needing to be renewed.

One other thing to keep an eye out for is an address that may be missing on these sites. Almost all of them do not feature a physical address on their homepage (or any page); this is a major red flag, as a business selling real ESA letters should feature a physical address, along with a number for contacting them. Even sites that do have a phone number may not pick up every time you call, which is highly suspect for what is supposed to be a legitimate business. It’s also important that, if they do feature an address, it can be verified. A very popular “form of contact” on these sites is through a contact form; this is not exactly professional, and if this is the only way to get in touch with them, you should be extremely suspicious.

Is EzCare Clinic Legit?

If you are looking for a legitimate website that can provide you with official emotional support animal documentation, EzCare Clinic.com has you covered. Unlike so many other of these scam sites, EzCare Clinic is an official health clinic that offers valid ESA letters that can be used for housing, travel, or both. They will have you speak with a licensed physician, either in-person or over the phone via telehealth; from here, the physician will be able to approve you for a letter.

EzCare Clinic provides a 100% money-back guarantee for any reason, such as not being accepted by an airline or apartment complex. They will even speak with the landlord or airline in question to explain that the letter is genuine. If you need other health services, EzCare Clinic has those too; they can assist you with ADD/ADHD, weight loss, sexual dysfunction, anxiety, and more. Additionally, their doctors can be verified by visiting this government website and looking up their license number.

What is an Emotional Support Animal?

So many of us love owning pets, or we at least know someone who does. For many people, a pet is part of their family. They have them in family photos, take them out all the time, and keep each other entertained. Not just a source of fun, pets can be a loving companion for so many people, to the point where they can’t bear to be separated. It can get to a point where some people can’t be as a calm or as comforted without their pet. This is why people seek out emotional support animals. Whether it’s been recommended by their physician, or if they already have the pet of their choice, an emotional support animal can bring comfort and stability to those who may be suffering from mental or emotional disorders. So if you already have a pet for support, what you’re probably looking for next is documentation. An ESA letter allows you to house your support pet at places and complexes that may otherwise not allow animals on the property. This way your options for where to live expand since you will not need to pay any extra fees for your ESA, as so long as you have the proper documentation. And let’s not forget that an ESA letter can let you fly onboard an airplane cabin with your pet, no extra charge or hassle.

At Mango Clinic Miami, we will have you speak with a licensed physician who will be able to recommend you for an ESA letter legally. We can provide you with a letter for housing, travel, or both, which will let you and your support animal live better, healthier, more comfortable lives.

Is NSARCO.com Legit?

Unfortunately, there are too many websites that are dedicated to scamming people by offering fake certificates. They can be tempting by displaying low prices or for making the process much quicker than it actually is. Many of these sites are very alike, offering unneeded products, such as vests, tags, and identification.

The National Service Animal Registry (NSAR) is one of these fraud websites that tricks people into paying for fake documentation such as an ESA letter. Of the many scam sites like it, NSARCO.com might be one of the most deceptive.

Their main website has a lot of information you can look at, not just about emotional support animals, but also service dogs and therapy animals. The homepage, featuring a photo of a vest-clad dog Photoshopped onto a stock photo of a woman sitting down at an airport, has a lot of links to different parts of the site. There is plenty to see on this homepage, but for those in the market for an ESA letter, the “How to Qualify” and “Products” pages may be what they are looking for. The products page easily lists the various things you don’t need, such as Service vests, leashes, and collars, as well as patches, tags, and ID cards. Again, if you need an ESA letter, none of these things are needed.

What we would be looking for is the ESA letter, which seems to be included as part of a “Registration Kit,” which can vary price. Just so you know, you never have to register your pet for anything, and no such registry exists. These “kits” include a “Lifetime ESA Registration” (ESA letters do not last a lifetime, they have to be renewed yearly) and “Inclusion in National Online Service Dog Database” (not real), among other, smaller things. The higher priced kits contain more of these unnecessary extras.

Fake ESA Kits
These ‘officially looking’ websites will often try to up-sell you on costly unnecessary accessories.

However, before you can get your hands on this kit, you need to qualify. The “How to Qualify” section of the site has a specific section for ESAs; this page looks like a FAQ and has two separate buttons that lead you to the product page. But how do you qualify? Well, if you didn’t click on the “Therapist Referral” link at the top of the page, the ESA page has a section that’s headlined “How to Qualify for an ESA.” This is where things start to get more sketchy, as this section mentions how “registration is voluntary” and that “Registering your pet as an ESA” legitimizes them and makes them “look official.” It’s a very strange language for what is supposed to be a helpful and sometimes necessary piece of documentation.

But what’s really troubling is that NSARCO.com refers you to their “recommended company” for getting qualified by “legitimate and highly accredited licensed mental health professionals.” This company is called Chilhowee Psychological Services (CPS), and they have the same mailing address as NSARCO.com. In fact, if you do a bit more digging, you will find that the same people run both companies. On the CPS website (cptas.com), you can visit the “About Us” page, which shows two pictures: one of the CEO, named Timothy Livingood, and one of the “Clinical and Administrative Staff,” which looks like a stock photo. If a company that can offer health services were legit, it would not use only one staff photo in its about page. Genuine companies tend to provide individual photos of select employees, and in some cases, these will include bios. The only person with a bio on CPS is Livingood, which mentions his educational and professional background. If the photo featured of him seems suspicious, that’s because it is. A quick reverse image search finds another photo that is identical, with the only difference being the head and face of the person in the photo. So in case, you were still on the fence, just know this company used a doctored photo of the CEO for their website. Further digging of the name “Timothy/Tim Livingood” will reveal, if nothing else, that he is indeed the CEO of both NSARCO and CPS.

News Investigation Against NSARCO.com

If you needed more proof that these companies were a scam, a local news station looked into it four years ago. FOX31 in Denver, CO. (located near the address featured on both NSARCO and CPS) did an investigation into scam sites that provided illegitimate ESA and service documentation. It covered how these sorts of sites harm the people who actually need service or emotional support animals. When so many people have fake letters, they might think they can take their pet anywhere. This affects those who actually need a service animal or have an ESA, as they may be looked as faking it.

FOX31 decided to try and get a letter from NSARCO. Following the instructions on their sites, they were able to get a letter that certified their cat as an ESA, and that they had a “mental health disability.” However, after filling out an online form, only one person ever spoke with them (for less than 15 minutes in total), and it wasn’t the doctor who subsequently signed their letter. The news team then decided to visit the address featured on both NSARCO.com and cptas.com. Here they found no doctors or medical staff; they found some people answering phones surrounded by boxes full of vests and patches. Using the picture of the “staff” as featured on cptas.com, they tried to figure out who, if anyone, in that picture worked there. When they asked a supervisor this question, they were asked to leave the premises.

Something else the FOX31 team mentioned that would otherwise go unnoticed is Stanford Sutherland, the man who signed the letter for the ESA cat. The footage for this news team showed the “About Us” page for cptas.com that featured Sutherland (since removed), who even has his own bio still online if you know how to find it. This bio page features a link that lets one “view and verify Mr. Sutherland’s licensing credentials and registration in the state of Colorado.” This link leads to a Colorado government site that includes Licensee Information; according to this page, Stanford Scott Sutherland voluntarily surrendered his Professional Counselor license in 2017.

How Does NSARCO.com Compare to Mango Clinic?

Qualifying Patients and Getting an Emotional Support Animal Letter

As we have seen, NSARCO does not qualify people themselves, but they do let you fill out an online test on cptas.com. From here, you should receive a letter from a “qualified professional” who will “certify” you to have an ESA.

Mango Clinic does things the right way, by having you come in and speak with a licensed physician; alternatively, this can be done via telehealth communication. Once you’ve been approved, you will receive a genuine and stamped ESA letter.

Obtain your ESA Letter at Mango Clinic

Cost of an Emotional Support Animal Letter

The ESA kits featured on NSARCO.com range from $54 to $154; the more expensive the kit, the more useless stuff comes with it. As for cptas.com, they have one price for a “Disability Assessment and Treatment Recommendation Letter” that goes for $164. Keep in mind, this $164 letter is just a piece of paper that says you can get yourself an ESA letter.

At Mango Clinic, you only need to pay either $129 (housing), $149 (travel), or $189 (housing and travel) for an ESA letter. Speaking with a licensed physician does not cost you extra since this is what you need to do before being approved for a letter.

What are the Guarantees?

Surprisingly, both NSARCO.com and cptas.com claim to offer guarantees. While cptas.com mentions a “100% Money-Back If You Fail to Qualify as Disabled” on their webpages, NSARCO.com has an entire webpage dedicated to it. Calling it a “No-Risk Guarantee,” the page says it will absolutely help out customers with any problems they may have with any of NSARCO’s products, including a 100% refund within 30 days of purchase. Mango Clinic offers a true money-back guarantee on your ESA letter if it is not accepted for any reason at any time.

Bottom Line

NSARCO.com and cptas.com may have intricate websites, but they are both scams, plain and simple. They cannot offer you a genuine ESA letter, and if you use their services, you will only be losing your money to products you can’t use or don’t need. Not only that, it has already been proven that they’re illegitimate from both a local news station and even through a mention from NPR.

Mango Clinic will be able to provide you with a legitimate emotional support animal letter by having you speak with a licensed physician who can approve you if you qualify.

ESARegistration Reviews

Your pet can be so much for you and the people in your life. Can any pet become an Emotional Support Animal? If you have children, a dog can be a great source of love and enjoyment, as well as comfort and companionship. If you happen to live alone, a cat, or even a snake, can be a loyal and calming pet for you to take care of. These animals won’t burden you with anything you can’t handle, and they can be a great source of entertainment and company. Pets can also be wonderful forms of therapy, as many will attest to. No matter what animal you have, your pet can provide you with much comfort and a source of love and affection. On that same spectrum, your pets won’t judge you, and they’ll be there for you when you need someone to talk to. Not only can they become the best of friends, but they can also become Emotional Support Animals as you’ll find yourself unable to part with them, especially when you’re somewhere else without them.

We at Mango Clinic Miami understand how important it is for you to be with your emotional support animal. For those with mental and emotional disorders, an ESA provides the comfort and treatment some people need. Getting an ESA letter allows you to confidently have your pet at your place of residence and with you when you travel. It even lets you bypass any fees you may otherwise have to pay in a residential building for having a pet. Not having an ESA letter can cause you too many problems if you intend to bring your pet to places they usually aren’t allowed. Other than residential complexes being unhappy (and likely throwing fits), airlines can deny you being with your pet in the cabin. If they do let you bring your pet, but you have no letter, they might charge you a fee or put your pet in cargo.

Is ESARegistration.org Legit?

Anyone who knows about ESAs understands their value and why getting an official certificate is vital. This is why we’ve written a review of ESARegistration.org, a site that anyone can come across online. Unlike Mango Clinic, it is not a legitimate business for getting letters and will scam you of your money.

Their homepage says they are “The Official ESA Registration of America,” however, no such registration exists. When getting an ESA letter, you do not have to register your animal, which is something not many people know. This is why many other scam sites use the word “registration” to trick people looking for information. This is also why the very name of the website is a red flag. Remember: When getting an ESA letter, only you the owner need to qualify; there’s no registration of any kind.

Additionally, the site mentions working in conjunction with mental health professionals but never once says who they are or whether you will be able to speak with one. What’s more, ESARegistration.org does not provide a physical address. Any good business providing ESA letters must have a physical location staffed by physicians and licensed mental health practitioners.

How Does ESARegistration.org Compare to Mango Clinic?

Qualifying Patients

ESARegistration.org first asks you to purchase the ESA letter of your choice (travel, housing, or both), which is very strange considering what comes next. According to their steps, after you purchase the letter, you schedule to talk with a therapist over the phone, so that they may assess you and see if you qualify. So essentially, they very explicitly want you to pay for their “letter,” and then talk to a therapist to see if you even qualify for the letter you’ve already paid for.

Mango Clinic makes sure that each and every person is properly qualified by our certified doctors. In the state of Florida, you are able to consult with a doctor via Telehealth, which means you can speak with them in video chat or over the phone. This makes getting an official ESA letter that much easier.

Cost of an ESA Letter

ESARegistration.org is an interesting case because they come off more like a store than a place to get a crucial medical letter. Among the many useless accessories you can get for your dog, the main thing they sell you is a kit that comes with too many things. These kits come at different prices (depending on what’s in it), but if you’re after just an ESA letter, they have that, too. The letters range from $130 to $150, depending on whether it’s for housing, travel, or both.

Esaregistration.org Prices
Be careful when chasing a seemingly good and easy online ESA deal

Mango Clinic provides you with a letter in prices ranging from $129 (housing), $149 (travel), and $189 (both). Some of these prices may seem a bit higher than ESARegistration.org, but that’s because we’re legitimate. Getting an ESA letter is never cheap, and neither is it so easy to get. These letters are guaranteed and recommended by professional and certified doctors.

Getting an ESA Letter

Strangely, ESARegistration.org does not have obvious information telling you how you would a letter. That may be because they don’t actually provide a physical certificate; it only exists as an electronic download. According to their ESA letter product page, “If a landlord requires a reasonable accommodation form there is a $75 additional fee.”

As you might have guessed, none of this is how it should be done. Mango Clinic will have you speak with one of our doctors, who can approve you for a letter, which you can receive in person or via email.

What are the Guarantees?

ESARegistration.org does not appear to have a money-back guarantee, but they do have an extensive return policy for the variety of different products they sell. They mention not being able to refund certificates, only replace them.

ESARegistration.com Bad Reviews
Always do your homework and read the reviews

Mango Clinic provides you with a 100% money-back guarantee; if your letter is not accepted for any reason, we will refund you. You can also call our number for any questions you may have.

As you can see, sites like ESARegistration.org are more interested in taking your money then they are in actually providing you with a real ESA letter. From the name alone, you know they aren’t genuine, and that any other site like theirs is not to be trusted.

If you’re looking to get an ESA letter, come to Mango Clinic, where you will speak with an actual doctor who can recommend you for a valid letter. We know the importance of always being with your animal companion, so call us at 786-391-0269 or visit our webpage to schedule an appointment today. You may also complete our ESA Online Form and speak with a doctor from the comfort of your home via telemedicine.

Emotional Support Animal Letter from ExpressPetCertify.com – Review

For some people, it can be hard to get through the day without the support of their favorite animal companion. For many, their pet becomes far more than a mere companion; it becomes what’s known as an Emotional Support Animal.  Where would we be if we didn’t have our cat waiting for us at home? What would we do if we couldn’t go to the park and enjoy the outdoors with our dog? How would we spend our time if not by being entertained by our snake? Who would we be able to share our love for if we didn’t have an adorable rabbit to have and hold?

So, what is an Emotional Support Animal? Depending on if you have a medical or mental health condition, you might find it almost impossible to be apart from your pet. It may even be the case that your doctor or therapist recommends you get an animal as part of your treatment. It may seem strange at first, but many have proven that having an emotional support animal is substantially beneficial. Also known as therapy pets, an emotional support animal can be just what you need for staying calm and comfortable. Where other forms of therapy have let you down or aren’t sufficient on their own, an ESA can improve your mental health and be an absolute life changer.

At Mango Clinic Miami, we understand why having an ESA letter is so important. This documentation will allow you to bring your ESA with you to more places than you would otherwise be allowed. If you’re living in an apartment complex that doesn’t generally allow pets, this letter would not only let you keep them, but you wouldn’t have to pay an extra fee. This letter also works for when you travel, since entities like airlines are known for denying passengers on flights and/or charging extra for pets. An ESA letter would allow you to travel with confidence, knowing that you won’t be denied a trip if you have the proper documentation.

Is ExpressPetCertify.com Legit?

When getting an ESA letter, you must always make sure you get it properly through the correct channels, so that it’s genuine. Otherwise, you won’t be able to fly with your pet or keep them with you at a residential complex.

However, sites like ExpressPetCertify.com attempt to trick people into throwing away their money for a false letter that won’t hold up as legit. This is why we have written this review explaining why you should stay away from them and what to look out for.

ExpressPetCertify.com may look nice and cute at first; it even has a cute dog on the links that take you around the site. The use of illustrations – as opposed to stock images – might make you think they’re the real deal. They even have an address, phone number, and email listed on their page, things that other scam sites don’t always have. However, as it turns out, this address cannot be verified. In addition to that, if you look up the address or phone number, you can find the site’s Better Business Bureau page, which has them at an “F” and with six complaints.

How Does ExpressPetCertify.com Compare to Mango Clinic?

Qualifying Patients

In order to qualify on ExpressPetCertify.com, you only have to fill out a questionnaire, after which you wait to get approved by a “licensed health professional.” On the main page outlining the process, there’s no mention of speaking with a doctor to properly qualify you, only that they may “follow up.” However, the FAQ page does say that you can set up an appointment to speak “with a licensed therapist,” which contrasts with the other info provided elsewhere on the site.

Mango Clinic will have you speak with a doctor via telehealth communication, who will assess your situation to see if you can be approved for an emotional support animal letter. Getting official approval from a licensed doctor is the only way to acquire a legal and valid letter.

Cost of an Emotional Support Animal Letter

ExpressPetCertify.com appears to have three packages for sale, with two of them being actual documentation. One of the packages is just “ESA Gear,” and for $79 it includes an “ESA ID card, vest and collar,” none of which you would ever need. This package also comes with a copy of your ESA letter, which would still need to be ordered separately. Then there’s the “2 in 1 Housing & Travel Letter” for $99; it says it will be accepted by several named airlines, as well as rental properties. It also says it will be signed by a “doctor, psychologist or therapist,” and that you get free same day delivery. Finally, there are the “3 ESA letters for the price of 1,” which doesn’t make sense if one letter on this site already costs $99. Other than including some of the same things as just getting one letter, this 3-in-1 is said to cover three pets and three “Family and friends,” as well as “Over 300 therapists at your service.”

Let’s start with the prices. A real ESA letter will never cost you $99; that’s too low and proves how little the company actually cares about providing you with valid documentation. Our letters range from $129 for housing, $149 for travel, and $189 for both. The higher price point is because we do everything correctly, the way it’s supposed to be done so that your letter is completely genuine. It should also be noted that you don’t need multiple letters if you have multiple animals, as one will cover however many you want to claim. They also don’t mention anything about renewals, which is essential because ESA letters do expire.

xpressPetCertify.com Is Not a Real Service
Unreasonably low prices are usually a bad indicator

Getting an Emotional Support Animal Letter

Among the links available to view is one detailing how you would go about getting an ESA letter on their site. This might be the most obvious red flag. Many other sites do the same thing: you fill out a questionnaire, choose which plan you want, then wait for a “licensed health professional” to review it so they can approve you. After this, they say you’ll receive your ESA letter “TODAY,” a strange claim since most of these sites say it would take a few days.

Getting a valid ESA letter is not this easy. Mango Clinic can provide you with a genuine certification, as we go about the process the correct way. You’ll speak with an actual certified doctor or therapist, either in-person or via telehealth, and from here you can be approved to get the proper ESA documentation.

What are the Guarantees?

ExpressPetCertify.com does not seem to present any guarantees that would make you feel confident about doing business with them. However, the individual product pages for the “ESA Letter” and the 3-in-1 respectively state “You will not be charged unless approved” and “Money back guarantee.” The latter on the 3-in-1 product page is the only time money back guarantee is brought up.

Expresspetcertify.com Has Many Bad Reviews
It’s always a good idea to check consumer reviews before you put in your credit card information

At Mango Clinic, we provide you with a 100% money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied and if your letter is not accepted for any reason. We can also be contacted if you have any questions.

While their website might look good on the surface, ExpressPetCertify.com is only interested in scamming you out of both your money and a true ESA letter. Instead, contact Mango Clinic Miami, who can provide you with a real letter that you can use, whether it’s for apartments, an upcoming flight, or both.
