Educating, supporting, pet carer’s and vets on the treatment of resistant bacteria

Whether you’re a pet carer with an infected pet, a person with a serious infection, someone who has concerns about cross infection, an interest in infection control, a farmer, a doctor, a student, vet or vet nurse, BMF is a source of information.

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

Since we began 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. The Bella Moss Foundation is a not for profit charity that relies on donations and volunteers.

"“Education is always going to be key in reducing the risk from MRSA and MRSP in veterinary practice. BSAVA has created practice guidelines and made them available to The Bella Moss Foundation, so that together we can share this best practice with all members of the clinical team as well as to pet owners. BMF has worked tirelessly alongside the veterinary profession on the issues around infection control, and this has contributed greatly to an increasing level of awareness. The British Small Animal Veterinary Association hopes that this excellent relationship with the profession continues to generate even greater knowledge and understanding.”"
