What do I need to know before I start worming puppies?

We have ten pups and I have no idea why they all have worms.

Every puppy will get worms through their mother after birth. You'll need to worm all ten of your puppies and mommy together, after 7 weeks and again at 10 weeks.

You need to do a feces analysis in order to check if the pups have parasites inside and it should be done when the pups are 20 days old.

About 98% of puppies are actually born with worms that they contracted from their mothers. It's a normal process to have to deworm puppies. The best advice I can give would be to take them to a vet who can prescribe the correct medication for worms they have.

Worms are very common in young puppies and are often passed on through the mother dog. General deworming in regular doses should take care of the probelm.
