Puppies are not born with worms and do not need to be dewormed unless they have worms. If your pups have been inside the whole time and the mother does not have worms your puppies will not have worms.

If however they have been exposed to the outside wait till they are about 6 weeks old and take a stool sample to the vet for a check...if they have worms they need to know what kind they are in order to give you the right medication, never use an all purpose wormer you buy from a petshop!

Agreed - 2 weeks is too young. Unless they are having problems, you should wait until they are about 6 weeks old. Get a fecal done first so that you know exactly what you are dealing with, so that you don't give more chemicals than are necessary.
