Depending on a person's views will depend on if you believe in animal communications. There are thousands of people around the world who follow this profession and with any job in the paranormal field, some people believe they have this ability and other people are straight frauds. If a person is wanting to try animal communication it is important to not offer loads of information to make sure it does not get regurgitated to you in a different way. Also, if one has to make the choice of paying their fee and you are hesitant, go to a vet instead. Make sure you know what you want to ask, google the person's name, and remember that time is money when talking to most.
In my opinion I feel that animal communication is another form of cold reading, but then looking at how many people follow these communicators and have that small sense of wonder in my mind if it is possibly real.
