Given that Robean lives in Nepal he's probably facing a more challenging environment and some of the natural or holistic choices may not be available or advisable...depending.
I've found that in warmer climes parasites, internal and external are more persistent. I've tried some of the natural alternatives and they just did not work, especially in areas or conditions of heavy infestation.
*Most* of the dewormers have been around and safely used for many years.
IMO - It would be advisable to take a stool sample to the vet and go from there and then practice holistic/natural methods to prevent re-infestation.

I would use Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth for flea control and I "think" it works on most worms save for heart worms? On the dog and in the house, more info here as a start:

Re: Flea and worm issue and the advice of spot-on or oral Vet scripted flea control and deworming medication...
Please do not take this advice...unless you want a set back or WORSE. Especially considering the "neurological" issues associated with this disease.
Spot-on flea control is a pesticide and is associated with seizures, neuro disorders and death. You do not have a healthy dog - NOT worth the risk. Period.
Deworming can be done with some simple additions to the diet and address more then just tapeworms, which are assumed at this point b/c of fleas...however, in pics looked more stringy, so could be round worms...
Nonetheless, use these natural dewormers:
1) Garlic - 1 clove crushed per meal
2) RAW organic pumpkin seeds (will find amounts, cannot remember off top of my head, but start at least with 1/2 tsp per meal)...finely ground. You can roast ever so slightly if you think source is not fresh - you find them in cooler section of health food store.
Note: Pumpkin seeds are triple duty - they kill parasites, contain zinc which is imperative to healthy immune system (to help fight off the worms and deal with any residual effects from distemper) AND contain magnesium which is an essential mineral for smooth muscle contraction, neuro function, heart health and synergy with calcium//phos.
3) Black Walnut - 1/2 human dose...use for a week, then off for 5 days, do this for a month...continue with above, daily. Check back in.
Note: sometimes wormwood is recommended along side of black walnut, however, very specific wormwood...however, wormwood is a caution as it can have seizure and neuro effects - so I do NOT recommend....only under a holistic vet care
Continue with the neem. Is it just a pet neem based shampoo, or are You using "Neem Oil" in it's natural form?

Ok so it definitely is tape worm then. I do not think that vet will have petmedpros here but i will ask him about it. Thank you again for the image, that really helps.

The dewormer and flea treatment is on top of our to do list for this weekend.

We noticed they were tangeling and the size was increasing so we had no choice but to cut em.
