I give Moxie a monthly tablet, but Heartworms are a huge problem in the US due to our climate and mosquito population. I was under the impression it wasn't such a big deal in the UK?

Nothing as we dont fortunately have this problem.

But we are seeing an increase in "Lung worm" (also known as French Heartworm) which is not the same as the thread topic, and I think its maybe wise to vaccinate against this , (every 3 mths) I think!!! or thats how long the vaccine lasts?????????

Now use Revolution (Pfizer). It is also good for fleas, ticks, etc. Formerly used Heartgard and Frontline.

I don't think heartworm is really an issue over here. As Jackbox says, we're seeing more and more cases of lungworm but AFAIK there's no preventative treatments available - all we can do is treat as if there's an infection, depending on how at-risk we feel the dogs are (I'm in an area where I personally know of several cases so treat my two quite frequently)
