Why would one deworm an asymptomatic 10 week old pup who is already on Trifexis and has no diarrhea and a negative fecal at 8 weeks ? ? ?

It is true, I have a 9 wk old, male Boston Terrier, the owners dewormed him at 6 wks old, right before we got him, and than I took him to a vet to double check at 7 wks old, for it has been 5 days later, Marley still had worms, so the vet dewormed Marley again. Now Marley is about 9 wks old and he still has worms. I think this article is very helpful and maybe the vet mentioned it and I must have forgot. But, I do not recall being told that I had to keep deworming him up to 16 wks. Marley is scheduled for another apt on August 27, but I cannot wait that long, for I want Marley to be done with his worms. Marley is a good dog, learning his house training very well, learning to fetch sticks and he is such a good doggy, Marley is very smart. It is terrible that he has to deal with these terrible things.

I just got 2 new puppies (siblings) and when asking the breeder if they had been dewormed I was told no because they don't have worms. She stated that she doesn't deworm them (as it's hard on their little stomach) unless they have worms. They are 8 weeks old and do not show any symptoms of possible worms but when reading this site, it states that all puppies should be dewormed. Is it possible that deworming may not be required?

My puppy is now 15 weeks and neither the breeder nor my vet mention this. She's been having issues with parasites and I've been going back and forth to the vet with no results! All the vet did was give her a shot to get rid of it. However, she's still having symptoms. Now I know why and I'm going to switch vets. Thank you!
