Less Stress Means A Healthier Pet

The Why

More than a Vet Service

Being a Registered Veterinary Technician or Veterinary Professional and being involved in the medicine that benefits the overall health and quality of life of our pets has always been and will always be our main focus; but we want to play a larger roll!

In human and animal medicine there has always been an interest in rehabilitation and palliative support and so Becky began researching those areas. When she came across the idea of canine massage, she was a bit skeptical but continued to research and ask questions.

When she had a better understanding of the matter, she began to pick the brains of other technicians and veterinarians who practice the specialty. Soon after she enrolled in the Canine Massage Therapy Course through the Canadian College of Massage and graduated with her Certification in Canine Massage. Trooper Pet Services now offers comprehensive Home Exercise Plans that incorporate Nutrition, Supplements, Massage and Exercises individually catered to your pet!

The Who

Meet Our Veterinary Nursing Team

Rebecca Bartley Mobile Veterinary Technician in Barrie with dog

Rebecca Bartley, CEO, RVT, CCMT

Becky has been working as a Veterinary Technician since 2012. Anyone who has met her knows she is an animal enthusiast and she is passionate about animal care and well-being! She is the CEO of Trooper Pet™ Veterinary Nursing and created it in 2016 after realizing there was “just a better way”. While working in clinics and hospitals she quickly realized that some pets were so scared and nervous that the experience could be very negative for all involved. She started offering in-home services and instantly realized pets (and their people) responded much better and the experience was much more rewarding!

She has a background in Veterinary Nutrition and is a Certified Canine Massage Therapist, working with senior & arthritic pets as well as post-orthopedic patients. You will find her around the community, networking and giving back with her spunky Border Collie, “Cooper”.

Maria Baker Veterinary Office Manager in Barrie
Maria Baker

Office Manager, Client Communications

It was Maria's simple love of animals that brought her into this profession. Maria worked at a Toronto Emergency Veterinary Hospital for many years as a receptionist/floor manager until herself, her husband and their daughter decided to move up north. At which time she started working at a clinic in Penetang where she was introduced to Becky. The two of them have remained close friends and when Covid-19 hit, she began to volunteer/ work for Trooper Pet. Maria has found a home in Trooper Pet, as she believes that this mobile service is much needed in our homes and community for pets to get routine care without the stress of a clinic...plus she gets to schedule the best of the best pets and their parents in the Simcoe County area! You can find her with her husband and daughter taking their dog, Oakley on adventures or cuddling with their cat, Ruby at home.

Melanie Phillips Mobile Veterinary Assistant in Barrie
Melanie Phillips

Certified Veterinary Assistant

Growing up Melanie was a huge animal lover, she has always had dogs and cats. It actually took her a while to figure out where she wanted to go with her career but she knew she wanted to be within the animal field. She went to Georgian College in Orillia for Veterinary Assisting and she explains it as being the ``greatest decision I've ever made! The experience I got has helped me tremendously grow as a person and in my career.`` While she loves working with animals, she really enjoys dealing with pet parents and educating them on things they may not know about or may be curious about. When she saw the job posting for Trooper Pet she knew it was the job for her - an opportunity to be able to see animals in their happy places and to see all the lovely pet parents with whom she can tell care tremendously about their fur babies. Welcome to the team Trooper Pet Melanie!
