BMF Literature

Animal welfare organisations are very conscious of the risk to dog’s health from MRSA and other multi-resistant bacteria and, potentially, to the humans with which they live. They are very supportive of the efforts made by the Bella Moss Foundation to publicise those dangers and educate the public and veterinary profession about how those risks can best be controlled. Education is the key issue and material produced by the foundation is really good training value for all who work in veterinary practices including veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses and other animal care assistants. The scientific seminars in which the foundation has been instrumental have also been excellent for spreading current information on the management and risks of resistant bacteria."
