Wash your hands throughly after handling poo! c:
Dewormer will likely take care of it.
Shouldn't have to worry too much. Zeeva had them as a puppy too...

all pups seem to be born with roundworms...they lie dormant in the dam's liver and get passed onto the pups (yes - gross, I know!!!)
Here, many breeders start worming those pups as soon as they can eat....I do 3 doses on a litter normally starting as soon as they are lapping up gruel....
In Europe, it is not common to worm dogs the way we do here....every pup I have known that has come over from Germany/Belgium, and even older dogs, have a pretty heavy case of roundworms....I worm anything I bring over pretty quickly and isolate them until they get wormed a time or two....very rarely have I had a pup go to a new home and show up with roundworms either....

As above - yes, roundworms.....Just like hooks and whips, roundworm eggs can enter the ground and other dogs pick them up - be sure to immediately pick up any feces...
He should be followed up 2x more - 10 days to 2 weeks between each worming....Please make sure that this is done, as one worming is not enough to get all the eggs in various stages of the cycle
By then, your vet may have him started on heartguard.

|EJQ||Poor little guy! These are round worms (passed from mom to puppies). Follow up with your vet because you will need to re-treat. For sure he is going to be feeling much better!|

|WVGSD||Roundworms are most often passed from the mother to the puppies. Be sure to pick up after your pup has a bowel movement immediately.|

|Gaby||Thanks for all the help! I was really worried about this. Are they contagious? all the dogs drink from the same water bowl.|

Those are roundworms. They look like spaghetti. Tape worms look like small pieces of rice and you can't see hookworms and whipworms with the naked eye. These two can be seen on a fecal exam with a microscope.
Your puppy will need to be wormed again in two to three weeks and may need a couple of sequential wormings. It is not that uncommon for this to happen.
