Worms are common..all dogs have a certain number of worms in thier system all the time. I give my dogs a Pyrantal Pamoate liquid wormer..pups are wormed weeks 3,4,5,6,7,8,10 and 12 and then every 3-6 months thereafter in two week intervals. Pyrantal Pamoate (Nemex-2 is the most common brand, but others are Evict and D-Worm) will kill roundworms and hookworms, which is what you described.
To kill tapeworms (caused from ingesting flea eggs), you need to use a Praziquantel based product ( most common products are Tapeworm Tabs or D-Worm).
And lastly, there is heartworm meds.... Ivermectin is the ingredient. I use injectable cattle ivermectin, but to be safe I recommend Heartguard for the average owner as you must be extremely careful with the other. Your dog must test negative for heartworms prior to giving the meds...very important!!
