The Bella Moss Foundation is a charity which promotes prudent antimicrobial use and hygiene in human and veterinary medicine.
We support pet owners whose pets contract resistant infections, but of equal importance we are committed to promoting courses, documentation and other resources for veterinary and medical professional
Jill Moss President & Founder BMF
The Bella Moss Foundation is a charity providing resources aimed principly at pet owners, but also assisting veterinary practices worldwide (Read about our tour in the USA) who want information on infection control and antimicrobial resistance. Visit our infection control website – veterinarynursetrainingonline.org. By providing information on hygiene in the home and in veterinary practice The Bella Moss Foundation is a vital intermediary between pet owners and veterinarians.
The Foundation was initially established in the face of increasing meticillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections in pets, but we have now broadened our remit to address other resistant bacteria transmitted between humans and animals.

We could not have had such an impact if it had not been for our involvement in the committees who we work with :
DEFRA’s MRSA DARC sub group on MRSA in animals
FECAVA ‘s working committee on veterinary hygiene and responsible use of antibiotics
The Bella Moss Foundation also regularly presents its work to veterinary and medical schools and other animal welfare charities, as well as breed clubs and animal shows throughout the UK.
