Antibiotics are, of course, used in other animals and The Bella Moss Foundation works with its education partner the Responsible Use of Medicines in Agriculture (RUMA) Alliance so that we can learn from the best practices we are both developing.

"Antimicrobial resistance is an important issue for all of us and our pets. Resistant bacteria are more difficult to treat and do not respect species or international boundaries. So it is important that all interested parties work together to minimise the growth and spread of antimicrobial resistance.
