supporting, pet carers and vets on the treatment of resistant bacteria
The Bella Moss Foundation is a charity
which promotes prudent antimicrobial use and hygiene in human and veterinary
medicine. It was set up in 2005 by Jill Moss, an actress, following the death
of her dog, Bella, from a badly managed MRSA infection, and has developed into
an international champion of good practice linking patients and veterinary
clients with best practice resources and access to good advice.
Bella Moss Foundation provides a
clinical advice network for UK vets and a basic referral service for vets
outside of the UK, and we are a point of contact, support and information for
vets and pet owners around the world.
Bella Moss Foundation communicates on a regular basis with the general public,
academic institutions, government departments and leading researchers
around the world. The BMF spreads its message through website, leaflets and
educational seminars as well as press articles.
The aim is to save lives and to prevent the spread of infections that
are passed between humans and animals.
