Phoenix Rising Integrative Veterinary Care was started by Dr. Radica Raj to provide a comprehensive medical approach to pet care that combines the best of conventional medicine and complimentary alternative therapies. Our focus is on treating the whole animal by using all of the available therapeutic options to achieve optimal wellness for your pet.
The Best in Pet Care
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.
Complementary and alternative veterinary medicine may include; acupuncture, homeopathy, homotoxicology, Traditional Chinese Medicine and chiropractic.
Dr. Radica Raj has also continued to expand into the cutting-edge field of Regenerative Medicine being the first veterinarian on Vancouver Island to offer Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma therapy for dogs and cats.
Combined with these impressive array of alternative treatment modalities, Phoenix Rising also offers diagnostic and treatment options in conventional medicine. Laboratory services like blood tests, vaccine titres, urine analysis, fecal tests, cytology etc. are actually offered as in-house services where you can get results within a few minutes.
Phoenix Rising also has set up ways of offering services like surgery and X-rays by working together with another clinic enabling Dr. Radica Raj to utilize her expertise in the field of emergency medicine and surgery.
Dr. Radica Raj has also recently joined the emergency on-call group of veterinarians in the Comox Valley and is available some nights and weekends for emergency services.
