Health and Wellness Test (PHWT) which consists of an extensive
battery of tests written to identify and diagnose DSM IV psychological
disorders. The PHWT will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes to
complete and is issued online (Step #2 at bottom of page).
Once complete your test is forwarded to one of Keystone Psych-
ological Services' Mental Health Professionals who will review your
test results to provide a final determination.
If it is determined you meet the criteria for an Emotional Support
Pet a Licensed Mental Health Professionals will write you a letter of
prescription that is then e-mailed to you as a PDF file to print at home.
The entire process takes approximately 2-3 business days.(Sorry rush
service is not available)

Evaluation and Emotional Support Pet prescription letter is $79.95 and
includes everything you will need to fly with your pet!
In the event you do not meet the initial criteria for an Emotional
Support Pet we may request more information from you. If you are
determined not to suffer from any of the DSM IV identifiable disorders
that would make you eligible for an Emotional Support Pet we will
issue a FULL REFUND!!
What You Need to Know
At the Airport
Once you have a letter of prescription for an Emotional Support Pet
all you need to do is present this document at the ticketing counter
during check-in - that's it! THE AIRLINE CANNOT CHARGE ANY
The airline may ask to make a copy of your prescription letter which
must be no older than one year old and verify that your pet will not be
a nuisance or danger to other passengers. Basically this is done by
visual observation, if your pet appears vicious, excessively noisy, or
presents any other indication that it may be a threat or nuisance to
others the airline has the right to deny you boarding.
On-board the Plane
Emotional Support Pets are required to sit on the floor if they cannot
be safely held in the passenger's lap. Pets as large as German
Shepards regularly fly onboard with their owners. (The dog to the right
is a 70lb Border Collie who flies with his owner on a regular basis as
an emotional support pet prescribed by Keystone Psychological
Most airlines will leave the seat next to a passenger flying with
an Emotional Support Pet open if they can (if the flight is not full) and
passengers with Emotional Support Pets get priority boarding and
bulk-head seating preference (the seating near the front of the plane
which has more leg room) at no additional cost. This is done because
airlines know passengers with Emotional Support Pets need the extra
room and time.
Also, it is even more important to arrive at the airport early so the
airline can accommodate you and your pet if necessary by keeping the
seat next to you open or provide you with a pre-boarding pass. Please
note airlines are not obligated by law to give emotional support pets
priority boarding or bulk-head seats but rather offer such conveniences
as a courtesy. If your pet is large they HAVE TO make a reasonable
effort to accommodate you or reschedule your flight.
Airlines you CANNOT Fly
Every major airline except American Airline and their partner Jet Blue
accept Emotional Support Pet prescriptions written by online services
(please note that your prescription will appear no different than ANY
other or have any indication how your diagnosis was made - online or
American Airlines **UPDATE** AA will tentatively accept prescriptions
from online services but requires the prescription be faxed (by you)
two days before you travel. Though airlines have the option to ask that
passengers with pets notify them 48 hours before departure most
airlines waive this rule as they cannot deny you service if you are
unable to do so pursuant to CFR 382.27(g) - please refer to legal
section. As such AA and Jet Blue are not recommended.
