Our integrative approach to veterinary medicine is designed to minimize adverse effects while promoting successful treatment outcomes that can improve the quality of life. We put the emphasis on using one or all reasonable therapies or medicines that work together to increase the probability of disease prevention that may not be possible using one system of medicine alone.
We offer holistic care for your pets, such as herbal medicine, dietary consultations, acupuncture and chiropractic care, as well as conventional medicine including: Weight Management & Dietary Consultations, Geriatric Consultations, Pain Management, Laser Therapy, Wellness exams,Cancer Therapy, Emergency Services and Euthanasia.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
Phoenix Rising Veterinary Care offers Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) for their patients. This is a form of regenerative medicine where healing is facilitated and new tissues are encouraged to grow and strengthen.
When your cat or dog suddenly suffers an injury, the pain can dramatically effect their ability to move comfortably and may have a huge impact on their quality of life.
What is Prolotherapy?
Chronic pain from injury to tendons and ligaments are a common problem in the world of small animals (dogs and cats). Mostly, we call these soft tissue injuries and manage them with non-steroidal anti-inflammatories and rest.
The tendons and ligaments are usually strong bands of connective tissue but they are poorly supplied with blood vessels. After injury, the healing is incomplete therefore they become weaker and are a source of constant pain.
