Food grade Diatomeaceous Earth is an excellent natural de wormer. Girardia can come from a pup's mother's milk, consuming contaminated dirt, etc. You have to break the worms' reproductive cycle. How long has your pup been on this treatment? DE can clear worms from stool in 7 days, but it takes a full 30 to kill all the larvae...

By now I think you might want to take stock of the pup. Is she really skinny or does she have a balanced shape with a slight hourglass notch? If the latter, then check the food your pup is eating. You might want to consider adding supplements to her diet.
