Dr. Maude Farah
Dr. Farah has been passionate about animals since a very early age. As a horseback rider or
while exploring her family’s ranch in the savanna of South Africa, all she could think about was to improve the quality of life of her dear furry friends. It was only after completing her law degree and working as a lawyer that she decided to leave all that behind and pursue her true purpose.
She went back to school and completed her Veterinary Medicine Doctorate from the Faculté de Médecine Vétérinaire de St-Hyacinthe de l’Université de Montréal and a small animal surgery and internal medicine internship at the Centre Vétérinaire Rive-Sud, one of the largest 24 hour Emergency animal hospital in Quebec. While the experience acquired in years of general practice in Montreal’s veterinary clinics was enriching, Dr. Farah was also able to experience the limitations imposed by conventional medicine. Having herself enjoyed for many years the benefits of integrative health solutions, she decided to extend the usage of these therapies to her own dogs and observed an incredible improvement in their quality of life. She then decided to focus all of her energy in deepening her knowledge about integrative medicine and completed her post-graduate diploma in Veterinary Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCVM) in Mixed Practice with the Chi Institute.
Having heard about Dr Raj and the amazing impact the team at Phoenix Rising Integrative Veterinary Care was having on their patients, Dr. Farah asked to join the team and moved to Vancouver to support the clinic’s mission.
Meet Jamie, our office manager. Phoenix Rising caught her attention as it was something that was different and new that she wasn’t familiar with. She wanted to learn more in the animal care industry to be able to help animals that are would benefit from more of a holistic approach.
With many years of office management, Jamie has brought over a strong ability to manage office functions and keep the clinic running. She is also detail oriented when it comes to making sure the team is on track.
Outside of the clinic, she spends most of her time with her dog, Bobo, and golfing.
Certified Holistic Carnivore Nutritionist
I’m so grateful to be a part of the Phoenix Rising team. I’ve always been an animal lover and it’s such a blessing to be surrounded by our furry patients everyday.
My dog, Dasher, was a patient at Phoenix Rising before I started working at the clinic. I was inspired to learn more when I experienced how proper nutrition has changed his life for the better. I am now a Certified Canine Nutritionist with Angel’s Animals and continuing my education with Companion Animal Science Institute – Canine Nutrition program.
In the office you can find me assisting Dr. Raj and Dr. Farah with creating custom meal plans for our patients. You can also find me helping with blood draws, titer tests and placing IV catheters for MAHT treatments.
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.
