I do not worm bitches until pups are 4 weeks old, and then I worm the puppies and I worm the bitch at the same time. I repeat that every two weeks. I use Strongid. After the pups are 12 weeks old, I just have the vet worm them when they go in for second or third shots.
The wormer is pretty safe, and I would rather puppies not have to manage to try to gain weight while feeding worms. Since the bitch cleans up after them, I always worm her too, each time.
