If you have a mental or physical health disorder, you have likely met with a physician about finding the right treatment for you. There are a variety of ways to treat ailments, ranging from pills to creams, with each bringing with them their own effects and range of effectiveness. Not all medicine types work for everyone, so it is not unusual that some people try to find alternative forms that might be more helpful for them. This can be especially true for those who are recovering from mental disorders; prescription medication may not be enough or be helpful for those with these types of disorders. While they can be helpful and recommended, it is always important to understand the number of alternatives that are out there.

Those recovering from a mental health disorder are often recommended therapy. There are different types of therapy options, ranging from one-on-one with a licensed therapist to group sessions. You can even do activities that help you out mentally as well as physically. These same therapy techniques can be supplemented by prescription medication, but it is not required.

What Is An Emotional Support Animal?

If you are not interested in traditional forms of therapy, then you may prefer an alternate path. While it may not seem as conventional at first, you could benefit greatly from having an emotional support animal. Also known as an ESA, these are domesticated animal companions who keep you comfortable and calm with their presence. They do not need to be specially trained in any way; as long as they are not an obvious hazard to anyone around them, they only need to keep you company. It’s a straightforward and successful form of therapy that has worked for so many around the world, and it is highly recommended to those who do not want to engage with prescription medication or regular therapy sessions.

This is also why it is so important to have an emotional support animal letter. EZCare Care clinic can provide you with a legitimate ESA letter that is signed by a licensed doctor and that can work in any part of the country. An ESA letter allows you to board airplanes without being hassled by the airline for having your animal companion with you. In this way, when traveling, you will not have to risk not having your ESA along wherever you go. This document also allows you to live in apartment complexes that may take issue with you having an animal of any kind. With an officially signed ESA letter, you will not have to worry about landlords or airlines charging you with additional and unfair fees.

ESA Myths
Misconceptions About Emotional Support Animals

Is EmotionalPetSupport.com A Scam?

One of the downsides to accessing the information on the internet is how easy it is to come across incorrect information, or people who want to do you harm. This is also the case with emotional support animal letters, as there are many websites online who have the sole aim of providing disingenuous products for the sake of profiting off unsuspecting ESA owners. If you try and get a product from one of these sites, you run the serious risk of paying money for something that will not hold up with airlines or landlords.

Many of these sites have a similar pattern, and EmotionalPetSupport.com is no exception. What they ask you to do is fill out a questionnaire with basic questions pertaining to your health and why your ESA is vital for you. This form is then sent out to someone (almost always referred to as a doctor) who will then look it over and determine whether you are suitable for having an ESA letter. From here, you should be sent an electronic document; many of these sites do not offer physical documents, though the ones that do have it at an additional cost.

This may seem normal and acceptable, and EmotionalPetSupport.com does a good job of making themselves seem very authentic. Their homepage has all of the info you would likely want or need pertaining to ESA letters and even includes some text that makes them appear genuine (such as “Real Company With Most Positive Reviews”). However, no matter how much text they may throw at you, they still fumble when it comes to the most important part of getting an ESA letter: they do not require you to speak with a licensed doctor. Anyone can make a certificate and send it your way, but with a real ESA letter, you have to speak with a licensed doctor who can properly evaluate your situation for approval. This can be done in person, over the phone, or through video chat; no matter which way, you must directly speak with a licensed doctor in order to get a genuine and valid ESA letter. If you receive a document signed by someone you never spoke to or interacted with, then that document is not valid as an ESA letter.

Fake ESA Letter
How to Spot a Fake ESA Letter

This is not the only thing that makes EmotionalPetSupport.com an untrustworthy website. Like too many other sites of its type, they seem to think that lumping service animals and emotional support animals together is perfectly fine. Even though many sites, including this one, do point out at service dogs and ESAs are not exactly the same thing, they still provide their product in such a way that either or will do just fine. What this means is that, if you have a service animal (not an ESA), then their website will also work for you, since a service animal could count as an ESA, or fall under similar guidelines and regulations (which is not true). Understand that service animals are trained and registered, where ESAs are not and are never registered in any way (another thing many scam sites claim you do when getting a letter).

One more thing to note is when sites like these do not feature a verifiable address; this alone could warrant you from staying away. In the case of EmotionalPetSupport.com, they do have an address on their site but it is not specific, only listing a city in Hawaii and its P.O. box number. Searching this address with its P.O. box number can actually lead you to a government website under the name of Hawaii Business Express, which lists information pertaining to EmotionalPetSupport. Of the info provided, it states that the purpose of the website is not ESA support but “PROVIDING WEB SERVICES SUCH AS SEO, WEB HOSTING, GOOGLE PPC.”

How Does EmotionalPetSupport.com Compare To EZCareClinic.com?

Getting an ESA letter from EmotionalPetSupport.com is just filling out the questionnaire on their homepage, waiting for someone to OK it, and then getting the letter via email. The only qualifications come from the information you provide, as anyone can visit the website and just fill out the form; no doctor will be speaking with you to properly see if you qualify or not. When you get to the part of the form where it asks you what sort of plan you want, you can choose between housing or travel for $99 or a combo deal for $149. Before that, you will come across various other offers relating to specific airlines and physical ID cards, which means the total price you might pay varies wildly.

EZCare Clinic makes it easy and legitimate by having you speak directly with a licensed doctor, either in person at our office or remotely over the phone or via video chat. The doctor will be able to hear your reasons for wanting an ESA letter, which will allow them to take in your qualifications properly in order to provide true approval for a recommendation. Once approved, you will be sent your ESA letter electronically, as well as physically at no additional charge. While our prices are higher than EmotionalPetSupport.com, that is only because we are a genuine service that can provide full customer support along with renewal discounts, additional paperwork, and revisions. We start at $150 for housing or travel and $199 for both.

Finding the right recovery options for a mental or physical health disorder can be frustrating for some patients. There are many options out there for all types of people, but it can also make looking for the right type of treatment more difficult. Being prescribed pills can be helpful for some, but it can also be harmful to others. As all people who suffer from disorders are different, these different treatment options exist because of some work better for others. There is not one definitive choice, which does allow for patients to look into alternatives they may not have previously considered.

Among traditional medication, there is therapy, which comes in different flavors depending on what you’re recovering from and what you prefer as a patient. While many think of therapy as a one-on-one session with a therapist, this is only one of the forms for recovery that exist. While a combination of pills and therapy sessions is common and sometimes recommended, you can choose another path that better suits you. For one thing, group therapy sessions are a thing that you might prefer, but you also may not want to have sessions with people you do not know. There is also a high chance that a regular therapy session is not something you want to be doing, even though it is a highly encouraged recovery method for some physical and mental health disorders. Luckily, alternatives in the realm of therapy do exist and have resulted in impressive results for some patients.

What Is An Emotional Support Animal?

Emotional support animals, or ESA for short, are animal companions that act as a significant form of therapy for owners from their mere presence. They do not need to be specially trained in any way, as they are essentially just regular domesticated pets. The difference is how the owner interacts with them; they are not simply pets but legitimate forms of therapy for those who are recovering from health disorders. ESAs are able to comfort and calm their owners in a way other forms of therapy cannot, making them extremely important and useful as recovery treatment. What’s more, your options for an ESA are more varied than you might think. While you can choose a dog or a cat, other unique animals such as pigs, snakes, birds, and rabbits are also viable.

ESA Myths
Myths about an ESA

If you want to get an emotional support animal, then make sure you also have an ESA letter from EZCare Clinic. While getting an ESA is no more difficult or different than choosing a regular pet, an ESA letter is a different scenario. These letters allow you to live in a residential complex or board an airplane without being hassled by landlords or airlines. The letter essentially permits you access to these places because it states that the ESA is vital to your recovery. Just so long as it is signed by a licensed doctor who has spoken with you previously, an ESA letter will make your life that much easier and better.

Is Therapetic.org Legit?

You have to be careful when looking for how to get an emotional support animal letter online. Too many sites exist for the sole purpose of scamming you of your money, either with illegitimate letters, ID cards, vests, or all three, along with any other additional material they may bundle together. One of the most common things that many of these sites share is how they provide their version of a letter: simply fill out a form, answer some questions, someone (unknown party) will look it over and approve you, resulting in the letter. They will never require you to speak with a licensed doctor, which is not how legal and valid ESA letters are done. Even if they mentioned licensed doctors, none of it is legit if you do not directly speak with the licensed doctor who will write you the letter.

Therapetic.org is one such website that features the previously mentioned patterns. While you can determine their validity just through that, the more serious and notable problem is that they say you register your ESA. If you were not sure before, this is all you really need to know to stay away. This is because ESAs are not registered; you do not register them or provide info of them on any sort of ID card. All you need is a document signed by a licensed doctor that states that you are recommended to have the ESA for treatment. In fact, to further clarify, the ESA letter is not so much for them but for you the patient, so if anyone is getting registered for anything, it would be you.

How Does Therapetic.org Compare To EZCareClinic.com?

With Therapetic.org all you really do is fill out a questionnaire and wait for an unknown person’s response. It doesn’t matter what sort of document they provide you, since you won’t be speaking directly with a licensed doctor, thus stripping it of any validity. EZCareClinic.com has you speak with a licensed doctor in order to be properly provided and approved for an ESA letter.

An ESA letter from EZCare Clinic costs between $150 for either housing or travel, and $199 for both, plus $99 for annual renewal. The reason these prices are higher than places like Therapetic.org is because they come from a legitimate business. Therapetic.org offers different sets at prices that range from $49 (for basic registration or letters) and $129 (for a combination they dub the “Ultimate ESA Package”).

Therapetic.org does what most other scam sites do: ask you to fill out a questionnaire, wait for someone to approve it, then receive a document. You can only get a physical version of the letter with the “Ultimate” combo package. Not only does EZCare Clinic actually have you speak with a licensed doctor, but you can do it either in person or remotely via telehealth communication. You can even get your ESA letter physically and electronically on the same day if you come in person to our clinic.

While Therapetic.org provides no guarantees, EZCare Clinic has a 100% money-back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied for any reason, we will give you a full refund.

Australian-Shepherd.jpg

 

Protective, intelligent, active, charming, and lovable are all accurate descriptions of an Australian Shepherd. Sometimes called “Aussies,” these dogs are most often found in homes where young children live but can also be trained as service animals for the disabled. Smart and fiercely loyal, these dogs make great companions for any family that desires an active four-legged friend. While the origin of the Australian Shepherd is left up to much debate, it is believed that this breed descended from shepherds of either the Basque Region of the Pyrenees Mountains of Spain or from
Germany. While shepherds and prized sheep were shipped to Australia and later to America, the dogs used by the Basque shepherds are thought to be entirely different than the Aussies we are accustomed to today. Australian Shepherd is also known to be a popular choice for an emotional support animal.

 

Australian Shepherd-A misnomer

The name Australian Shepherd is a misnomer. Surprisingly, the Australian Shepherd isn’t even recognized in Australia as a native breed. A more accurate name for the Aussie would be the American Shepherd to reflect where the modern-day version was developed, the United States. Although the name American Shepherd has not been adopted, whatever their origin, Australian Shepherds are a fantastic breed that is not only an excellent herding dog but one that quickly wove its way into the hearts of American dog lovers.

Australian Shepherd-Appearance

When first introduced to the United States, the Australian Shepherd was a hardworking, athletic, herding dog. This quality attracted the American ranchers, who desperately needed protection for their livestock. Their looks and reputation helped to make them in high demand early on and ensured their place among other working dog breeds. The Australian Shepherd weighs between 35 to 65 pounds, and their height ranges from 18 to 23 inches. The Aussie has a medium-length double fur that can be either wavy or straight. Often, their coat is described as a merle, meaning that it has dark blotches against a light background of the same color. The distinctive look makes their coats stand out and even have a speckled freckled look to it, depending on how the pattern varies. Australian Shepherds are blessed with beautiful colors such as red or blue merle, black or red with white markings and copper points (markings located on the face, ears, legs, and the tail). Dogs of this breed who are mostly white are generally associated with health issues due to a genetic link that often leads to deafness or blindness. One of the most fascinating features of Aussies is their eye color. This breed’s eyes can be brown, blue, green, amber, hazel, or a combination of the above. The color of the eyes do not end with eyes of two different colors; they can also have “split eyes,” a condition that makes one half of an eye one color and the other half another color. These unique physical characteristics make the Aussie stand out from other herding dogs.

Australian Shepherd-Character/Temperament

Australian Shepherds are well-known for their character and even temperament. These dogs seem to be bred to possess great traits that make one outstanding dog breed.

Some of their strongest attributes are their:

  • Intelligence
  • Obedience
  • Loyalty
  • Protective nature
  • Willingness to please their owners

Australian Shepherd-Care/Health

Caring for the Aussie involves the basics such as; high-quality dog food, limiting treats to prevent obesity from becoming a health issue and proper grooming. Unfortunately, during the shedding season, grooming an Australian Shepherd can be a great deal of work. This season is characterized by a coat that has become overrun with an abundance of dead hair making it tough to comb or brush. Patience during grooming will go a long way when this season comes around. Exercising the Aussie is a must and should be done on a daily basis. As a highly athletic, high-energy dog, Aussies need an appropriate outlet for all their energy. Owners who are less active can sometimes find it challenging to exercise Aussies. Before choosing this breed, potential owners need to consider the specific needs associated with Australian Shepherds. Just as with other working dogs, Aussie’s tend to get into trouble when their energy hasn’t been released through exercise or engaging activities. Some helpful activities to consider for the Aussie include:

  • Obedience training (check the internet for local areas that offer obedience training)
  • Dock Diving
  • Herding and agility trails
  • Other canine competing events that would engage the herding urge Aussie’s are born with

Australian Shepherd-Training/Obedience

An Aussie’s need for a vast amount of activity creates several opportunities for training this athletic breed. Socialization should be a top priority early in life, and obedience training should begin as soon as the puppy is old enough to attend classes. Aussies can be very territorial and protective of their families so controlling that natural behavior is essential to having a well-behaved pet. The eagerness to please their owners usually overrides any negative behavior making an Aussie easily trainable. Channeling their energy into productive and rewarding behavior will help to create a satisfying and long-lasting relationship with your Aussie. The Australian Shepherd will always be a herding dog at heart no matter what training they have received. It is not unusual to hear funny stories of Aussies “herding” other animals or even small children around their homes. When outside, Aussies can often put themselves in dangerous situations. Responsible owners must ensure their dog’s safety by providing appropriate places for them to play when unsupervised such as a fenced-in area. Without supervision, Aussies have been known to “herd” automobiles on the roadway setting them up for serious accidents.

Once training and obedience goals are established within the Aussie’s mind, an owner can rest assured they will have a unique companion that will show their loyalty through thick and thin or an emotional support animal for those who qualify.
