I wouldn't wait for Monday. Worms are normal in puppies, but that is a pretty serious infestation and you are probably dealing with a number of types. Much better to take the puppy in, than getting something off the internet, or at a feed store.

I use strongid, I get it from the vet and usually start worming at 3-4 weeks old and by the time they go home at 8 weeks, they have been wormed 3 times, one of them by the vet, twice by me. I continue worming them every 4 weeks thereafter until they are fully immunized.
