Our dog Maggie a 5 year old Bichon/poodle was limping terribly and was suffering from pain. The problem was diagnosed as ‘’Cruciate Ligament Rupture’’ in her left knee joint. We made a decision to try acupuncture, it provided some relief for a short period of time. Phoenix Rising staff advised us Dr. Radica had recently taken a course on administering Prolotherapy. The procedure was less invasive and was considerably cheaper than the prescribed surgical procedure. We opted for the Prolotherapy. Since the procedure on December 8, 2014 our puppy Maggie has returned to being a normal happy dog, walking and running with ease. We are extremely pleased with the professionalism and care we have received from Phoenix Rising Veterinary Care and would recommend the procedure to other dog owners.
