New emotional support animal rule is unfair to Americans with disabilities Personal note: I don't agree. For one thing, if you really need a service animal, simply get a dog (allergies can now be under total control, if that is the problem - and there are breeds that are less allergenic than others). For another, f you are disabled and need a service animal, why wouldn't you have its paperwork in order?
