Puppy has parasites

Hi all, we have a Teddy Bear puppy since Christmas. He is 15 wks old. We took him to the vet recently as a regular checkup. They did some tests on his stool and it came back positive for parasites. He was having some loose stools and also a little blood sometimes. Coughing, sneezing, I read this is all due to parasites. So we are giving medicine for it. How the medicine is supposed to do its job. He is gonna keep expelling the worms through his stools? We started the meda yesterday night, and everyday when I took him out in the morning he would poop like 3 times. But today he didnt poop.

It's 11am where I am, give the poor thing a break, he may not be ready to poop yet. And yes parasites will come out in his excrement. I would highly suggest you keep monitoring these closely, and if indoors sanitize like crazy. If outdoors, and if it's warm enough, clean up immediately spray down the area with water from a hose.
