Most of my patients have done the background work with the agency to even see if they would qualify. Then I write the letter asking for the animal. Then insurances, etc duke it out. Once you have the animal your work, school, etc, have to fall in line for ADA reasons,

@purple What agency?

It depends on why you need the service animal. There are blind ones, diabetes ones, seizure ones, companion for depression, etc.
