Educating, supporting, pet carers and vets on the treatment of resistant bacteria

Who we offer support to:

· Pet carers with an infected pet,

· Someone who has concerns about cross infection,

· A farmer, a doctor, a student, vet or vet nurse, with an interest in infection control

 

Our vision is a world where multi resistant bacteria are a rarity

Since we began in 2007 we have helped to save thousands of animals lives with early detection of MRSA and other infections, and helped to educate veterinarians and nurses on the risk factors of transmission of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) / Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus

Pseudintermedius (MRSP). The Foundation is a not for profit charity relying on donations and volunteers.

Our Mission is to educate and support vets and pet owners on the treatment and prevention of resistant bacteria. Our vision is to eradicate the risk posed by resistant bacteria to humans and animals

 

Our Goals

Good Health is all about preventing infections:

Highlighting best hygiene practice in veterinary medicine

"This initiative marks a new chapter in both the work of The Foundation and the global effort to improve health across human, animal and environmental boundaries, and one which I am proud to support.

The Bella Moss Foundation works in collaboration with the British Veterinary Associations and veterinary schools to improve infection control, knowledge and practice. Now The Foundation has joined with what is perhaps the most significant development in the global struggle against resistant bacteria; the One Health Initiative. www.onehealthinitiative.com"
