Is phobia for animals a neurological disorder?

Hi my name is Ericka. Since I was 6 months old i have had what seems like a feel of animals. The thing is that I m not actually scared of the animal as I am of them touching me. My mom was told by a dr once that this is an neurological disorder rather than a fear or phobia of animals. I m being denied medical trans portion by cab rides vs bus rides which is causing me not to get medical attention. Can someone tell me if this an actual neurological disorder and what is the name of it? Thank you
