Thank you for visiting. I am Cara DeLaRosa, Certified Pet Loss Grief Coach.

I have been a part of the veterinary community here in Sonoma County since 2010.

I launched Healing Hands Animal Care in 2012 and Pet Loss Alchemy in 2016, after becoming certified as a Pet Loss Grief Coach the same year.

I am a member of the Pet Loss Professionals Alliance as well as the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care.

I train pet parents on medication administration as well as perform limited in-person visits (SubQ fluid therapy, injectables, mat shaving, nail trims, etc).


I specialize in veterinary end of life care and provide quality of life evaluations, animal hospice support and pet loss grief coaching sessions.


In October 2022, I launched my first pet loss course for grieving pet parents.

Pet Loss is a topic near and dear to my heart, as the loss of my own heart animal was the catalyst for launching my animal care career.


I am someone who truly understands the profound grief experienced after pet loss and utilize the lessons gleaned from my own pet loss journey to uplift and empower grieving pet parents.

I am also a Reiki Master Level Healer, artist and intuitive, and utilize those special skills through animal communication readings and custom channelled memorial pet portraits.
