We have a therapy dog.. What expenses can we claim? Food? Treats? Vest? Leashes? Training? Vet Bills? Can we claim all expenses or just from the start of her training?

CRA's list of eligible medical expenses relating to a therapy animal includes

  • Food (treats would fall into this category)
  • Vet expenses
  • Training (leash/vest required for training)
  • the initial cost of the animal.

Because the expenses are only eligible for service animals, I'd advise claiming expenses only from the beginning of her training.
