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,

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