About Larissa

Hi, I'm Larissa and I'm graduated in Veterinary Medicine. I've worked in the past with radiology of small animals, but today I don't follow. I have lived with animals for all my life and I've already had 8 dogs, 6 of them adopted (and 2 Great Danes!) and today we only have one at my mother's house, Lola.

I feel connected to every animal, I'm a vegetarian and an animal lover. A couple of years ago, my husband and I started a big trip around the world and we want to have real experiences, meeting people and having pets around, which makes everything a lot more fun.
I have a wide experience with animals, taking care of puppies and senior dogs, and we have also worked with pet accommodation in our house, when we lived in Brazil. We have taken care not only of domestic pets, but we've had the opportunity to take care of a rescue chicken and a bird at home.

As a veterinarian, I can recognize any problems
your pet may have and take the necessary steps. Me and my husband are also professional housesitters and we have taken care of more than 15 houses while traveling and pet sitting.

I’m currently working remotely part time and I have a lot of free time during the week or weekend. I love having pets around and I can dedicate myself full time to take care of them

Larissa is awesome! She was super communicative, sent substantive updates on each visit, was very

accommodating of my schedule changes, and immediately bonded with my cat. I highly recommend her!!

It's always a good sign when I come back after a trip and my cats don't seem to have noticed I was gone. Haha! Larissa was super communicative and friendly while she looked after my cats. I will happily trust her again when I need help.
