UK Registered Charity 1122246 This website would not be possible without the kind help of Tony Martin of the “AV Martin Charitable Foundation”

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 and pet owners around the world.

If you are managing a resistant infection in your pet, we recommend you seek veterinary help immediately. We can then help your vet if they need clinical advice and guidance, by referring them to one of our clinical advisers.

Bella Moss Foundation cannot provide immediate clinical advice. The charity phone line and email service is manned by a small team of UK-based volunteers (not vets), who will endeavour to respond to all queries as soon as possible and forward them on to a relevant clinical adviser if appropriate. If your vet would like to discuss a clinical case with one of our veterinary experts on antimicrobial resistance email us at info@thebellamossfoundation.com . We will with your permission put your veterinarian in touch with our vet experts to discuss clinical cases which are all individual. We will need your vets name. surgery address and email /phone contact details.

What we need to know:

When you get in touch, please be sure to tell us your name, where you are based and any additional contact details.

Please provide us with a brief outline of your pet’s story and condition – including start date, details of symptoms and any initial treatment.

Please do not send us your pet’s full clinical history, test results or photos. In-depth clinical details will then be discussed by the relevant veterinary clinicians.
