Dear friends and supporters of Phoenix Rising,

With the approach of spring, Phoenix Rising is going through a period of renewal. We have decided to move out of Harbourview Animal Hospital as of March 31, 2019. While we work to get a permanent holistic space for all our patients, we may have to remain closed briefly. This period of closure may be 2-3 weeks or earlier as we set up a temporary location for the College of Veterinarians to approve.  We hope to finalize and move into our permanent space in 3 months.

Please bear with us for this interruption in service. 

While it is unexpected, in my ever optimistic view of the world, I think it is a giant leap forward as we strive together to heal and care for our pets. We will keep the phone and email open at this time to address all your needs. So please do not hesitate to call or email the lovely Laura that you have all gotten to know so well. 

I thank the lovely staff of Harbourview for working so hard and helping with our patients – Barb, Diana and Suzanne. Thank you to Dr. Lahey for sharing your space with us these 2 months. 

Laura and I are looking forward to creating a perfect space for you and your pets real soon.

Much love from the Phoenix Rising Team – Laura and Dr. Raj

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.

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
DVM

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.
