National Pet Month supporting charity Bella Moss Foundation has teamed up with National Pet Month trustee NOAH to survey the depth of people’s knowledge on the relevance of antibiotics to them, their families and pets.
We’re asking as many people as possible to take part in the short survey , which focusses on the Bella Moss Foundation #BeattheBugs video, and remains open until 18th March. The results will be launched during National Pet Month 2018.
The #BeattheBugs one-minute video was created by the Bella Moss Foundation to explain the threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) to families and pets. It stars a mass of multiplying, resistant bugs, and outlines how we can all do our bit to stop them from making our antibiotics ineffective.
Bella Moss Foundation trustee Chris Laurence says: “The need to ensure we keep our antibiotics effective is of increasing importance. We want to know what you think about it and whether you think a short video is a good way of advising you of the potential risks to you, your family and pets, and what you can do to help. Please take our short survey so we can find out what you think, and what would be of use to you.”
Dawn Howard, NOAH Chief Executive says: “NOAH believes this survey will help raise awareness of the role we all have in keeping antibiotics effective. While the veterinary and medical profession commit to responsible prescribing, we can all play our part in heeding their advice by trusting when antibiotics are not prescribed and following the professionals’ directions in taking them. This way, antibiotics will help us and our pets when needed for years to come.”
