Tape worms

I have a german Shepard puppy that is 9 wks old she was wormed at 5 wks & today i wormed her again using DUB_NEMEX-2 wormer.I only saw one worm flat looking about 1/2" long in her stool probably 8 hrs after worming how often should i worm her to make sure i get rid of the worms.I also gave her the DUB_SOLO_JEC-7 injection for distemper.I buy my own medication & treat my cats & now im doing the same with the puppy.I appreciate any advice

First my usual Disclaimer!

Be sure to not use dog/cat medicines interchangeably as most often they are not!

You should worm once a month for usually 6 months and if she is a mainly indoor dog, simply watch her stool.

For the record I do not believe that DUB_Nemex-2 covers tape worms, but rather the more common round worms.

As for the Tape Worms, be sure to keep your pets flea free and they Usually won't contract tape worm. Normal reason for tape worms is flea ingestion. Normal wormer for Tape is Droncet, which can be purchased over the counter these days, or directly from your vet. Be sure to follow dosing carefully as it is weight based.
