Giardia sucks, one of my guys had it when we brought him home, it took two rounds to get rid of it too. Im glad he is rid of it?
As for tape worms, don't quote me on this since I'm going from memory and quick searches on line, the eggs are passed in the poop. You (humans) usually get tapeworms if you eat raw or undercooked infected meat or are not very higenic and have come in contact with the eggs (yuck). I would say make sure you dispose of his poop well (it cant hurt to make sure a wild animal doesn't eat the eggs and continue the life cycle) and make sure you always wash your hands after. But again don't quote me on this since I'm not a expert.
But if you have any concerns I would deffinitly talk with your vet as they will know more about tapeworms and their life cycles. I hope your pup gets rid of them soon.
