The Who, What, When & Why
The Who & When
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 Services 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”.
More than a Vet Tech
Being a Registered Veterinary Technician or better referred to as, “Veterinary Nurse” 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!
Convenient Mobile Pet Services
We conveniently travel to our patients rather than having them go through the hassle and stress of travelling to us at an animal hospital. I work alongside veterinarians and support teams to ensure we are providing the best care possible for your pet! From Canine Massage, to in-home nail trims and everything in between we offer Veterinary Nursing services in a “never-before-seen” way!
Reducing the stress and anxiety in our pets leads to a healthier pet and a happier human. Whether it’s a visit for a stress-free blood collection or nail trim, we are here to support and care for your pet with as much love as we have for our own. Trooper Pet promises to continue learning and expanding with your pet’s best interests at hand!
