- RESERVATION ACCEPTANCE
2.1 The Services listed on the reservation (APPOINTMENT) page are offered subject to the availability of the Services to which they refer. They may be withdrawn or modified at any time.
2.2 A reservation sent constitutes an offer to reserve the Services at the price stipulated in the reservation. Any reservation confirmation email received by you is simply an acknowledgement of receipt of your offer to reserve the Services.
2.3 Acceptance of your reservation will only occur once payment for the Services of your reservation has been received (the “Acceptance”). It is therefore possible that your reservation may be cancelled at any time prior to the Acceptance.
2.4 If you fail to pay any invoice by the due date indicated or if you commit a breach of these Conditions, or if it is impossible to process your payment, the current reservation will consequently be interrupted or suspended.

I can, for example, transmit the emotions experienced by your animal, tell you how they feel, what they aspire to, what they like or dislike, as well as communicate with them. I can also tell you about any misunderstandings or difficulties your pet may be experiencing. I convey this information in the way I perceive it.
