Louise-o-dwyer

10 years ago Louise became a volunteer for the Ballymoss foundation not only was she a great factory nurse but also a gifted author. Louise has a unique talent of taking complex scientific information and making accessible for the layperson. She has helped thousands of veterinary nurses and veterinary practices battle antimicrobial resistance and hundreds of pet owners and pets become more aware of what they can do to prevent the spread of disease between humans and animals.

Not only was Louisa gifted veterinarian and author but a person with a big heart that cares passionately about animals she was also a unique friend. The Bella moss foundation is going to be lost without her, And I will miss her greatly. Louise Had a very big heart and was always willing To step up and help our charity in any way that she could. Gone to soon and will be greatly missed by everyone whose lives she touched
