“MRSA infections in pets continue to cause concern to veterinary surgeons and owners. The work of the Bella Moss foundation has focused on providing clear and helpful information for pet owners which has made it easier for many pet owners to understand the requirements and implications of treating MRSA infected animals. The Bella Moss Foundation has also helped to promote awareness and research on MRSA in veterinary medicine.”
