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.

If you would like to know more about RUMA and the use of antibiotics in livestock please use the following links:

"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.

The Bella Moss Foundation provides a vital link with pet owners and the veterinary profession and RUMA are glad to collaborate on educational projects"
