I am looking for the answer to this question as well, and the person who gave the best answer below I believe failed to tell you the amount of days to wait in between. My dog had whipworms she got from the dog hotel I believe, but she had a little mucus and blood in her stool. Anyway, I gave her two one gram packages in her food every day for three days. Two one gram packages because she is between 10 and 20 pounds. But I am pretty sure that I now wait two weeks and then do that again. Two one gram packages in her food for three consecutive days again to kill any eggs that may have made it through the process the first time. The other guy is right that worms or pieces of worms can come out after, but this sounds like reinfestation and those little white worms crawling on the dog's butt you cannot mistake for these dead pieces of worms.

What you are seeing are segments of tapeworm that break off into the stool or sometimes seen on the rear end. Praziquantel is the best treatment also known as Drontal or Droncit. You will need to see your Vet to get some.

Generally the various packages recommend worming 3 times to ensure that all hatching eggs are also eliminated. Vets then recommend waiting at least 60 days before completing another round of worm medication. Keep in mind that worms come from dogs smelling other dogs feces, sharing bowls, etc. and from being attacked by worm-larvae carrying fleas, etc. Once you get your pit wormed again this time, if she is not exposed to these again, you should be fine. Also keep in mind that feeding a high-quality, non-grain diet and food-grade meats will help her immune system fight off all sorts of problems. I recommend the Nature's Recipe line from Petco as a great start. Add their Salmon Oil for missing Omega 3's.
