(WXYZ) — Starting Monday, it will be harder to fly with an emotional support animal on United Airlines.

The animals will not be allowed on flights that are more than eight hours long. The airline will also not accept kittens or puppies that are under four months old.

United joins Delta and Spirit in changing policies on emotional support animals.
