What your Dr’s note should say

In Ontario the only legal document that is required for you to have a service dog accompanying you is a Dr’s note. Generally this is on a regular prescription header paper and is usually updated once a year. Your Dr may charge a fee to update your prescription.

You are not required to state what your disability is unless you need your Dr’s note for flying.

For example:

To whom it may concern,

(Your name)(Your Details i.e DOB , Health #)

The above mentioned has a medical condition for which a service dog is required.

Should you need to use air travel, your carrier might require you to state your disability according to DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders).
