Our integrative approach to veterinary medicine is designed to minimize adverse effects while promoting successful treatment outcomes that can improve quality of life. We place the emphasis on using one or all reasonable therapies or medicines that work together towards disease prevention. This may not be possible using one system of medicine alone.

Complementary and alternative veterinary medicine include: acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine and chiropractic.

We now offer Ozone Therapy.

Phoenix Rising Integrative Vet Care is committed to providing all of our patients with exceptional care. When a patient cancels without giving enough notice, they prevent another patient from being seen.

Please call us at 604.436.0726 24 hrs before your appointment to cancel. If prior notification is not given, you will be charged $50. for the missed appointment.

Once specialized procedures are booked there is a cancellation fee of $50 which comes into place immediately after the booking. This is because procedures are performed at another clinic and there is a tremendous amount of work involved in coordinating with the other clinic.

Dr. Radica Raj

Dr. Radica Raj started practice as a Veterinarian in general practice but soon embarked on a more fast-paced career in Veterinary Emergency Medicine and Critical Care in Ontario.

Within a year of practice in this field she was inspired to start her own emergency facility and subsequently opened a second general practice. While this path provided the stimulus and the challenges she had yearned for, she soon realized that there had to be a better quality of life for terminally-ill patients, for the geriatric patients disabled by osteoarthritis and for the paralyzed patients that could not walk.

Determined to explore these avenues and find answers, she successfully completed her post-graduate diploma in Veterinary Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCVM) with the Chi Institute in Florida. She then completed a program in Animal Chiropractic at Options for Animals in Kansas and obtained an animal chiropractic certification from the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association (IVCA).

She then started Phoenix Rising Integrative Veterinary Care thereby opening the door to an integrative veterinary clinic on Vancouver Island. She ensured that her services were integrative by performing surgery on her patients through another clinic even as she practised wholistic medicine.

Dr. Radica Raj has experience handling emergencies, surgical and internal medicine cases as well as chiropractic, acupuncture, Chinese Medicine and Regenerative medicine i.e. PRP, prolotherapy, etc. On account of this, you will find that she is more than willing to collaborate with your family veterinarian and specialists involved in dealing with your pet’s health.

Her scope of practice includes Internal medicine, Surgery, Emergency, Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine and Regenerative Medicine.

She is now also certified in Canine Rehabilitation. 

Laura Khorchidian

Prior to her own personal lifestyle change, Laura was an accomplished Chief Financial Officer for several companies.

Laura graduated with a First Class Honours diploma from The Institute of Holistic Nutrition. She has also trained at The Edison School of Nutrition in live blood cell analysis.

She is currently enrolled in a Canine Nutrition program hoping to help dogs obtain the same success as humans through healing with food and of course, their owner’s abundance of love.
