International Clinical Advisors to the Bella Moss Foundation

Our clinical advisors can only talk with veterinarians on issues to do with clinical management of cases. BMF does not give out to the public medical advice, but doctors and vet’s treating patients can speak directly with our advisors.

It is with great sadness that we have lost three very special mentors

Please see our ‘in loving memory’ page for more

The late Tracy Mayne VN, VHA, CVPM, MBVNA.

The late R. Tony Sarma, BVM&S CertSAS MRCVS

The late Mr Nicholas J. Mills, M.A., Vet.M.B., M.R.C.V.S, Q.D.R.

Jill Moss, through BMF has worked tirelessly to ensure that the subject of MRSA in particular and other Hospital Acquired infections in general, remain firmly in focus for the veterinary profession. The constant updating of knowledge and the dissemination of that knowledge has been a cornerstone of the BMF. The changing attitude of professionals to the risks of hospital acquired infections has to a large extent been down to the work of BMF.

Mr Mike Jessop, MRCVS (Former) President British Small animal veterinary association (BSAVA)
