It was falling out all over his body.

Sorry to hear he had such a bad reaction!
They have checked his stool twice and gave him deworming twice.. I don't understand. If they deworm him when he is few weeks old ,then why do they need to do it again and again?

Like others suggested, maybe a fecal exam would be a good idea.

Yeah I will take him back.. I'm just waiting for his to get better. I think that the reason why he got so sick is because , they gave him the rabbi booster along with the other two shots.. thats too many in one day!

They told us to dig and see if he has worms, like we were doctors...

" UPDATE"

I've found a tooth stuck in my puppy's hair. Turns out , the reason why he couldn't eat and he was throwing up right away, is becasue he coudln't chew his food , instead he was eating it whole... I got so scared for nothing. My mom called off work and stayed home with him.... He is now feeling so much better .

My little guy, as a pup LOVED playing with snails, used to bring me one almost everyday. you might be aware, snails are part of the lifestyle of numerous parasites, aka worms. so my guys had 2-3 extra rounds of deworming b/c he had worms (could see 'em around the butt hole and in the poop).

a fecal sample as already mentioned will reveal which worms. but yes, there is a shot for deworming, also pills, you can buy. but it depends on the worms you have.

I'm glad he's feeling better, what a relief! When Lola was teething and had difficulty chewing, I used to water down her food which seemed to help.

There are several different types of worms that dogs can get and different ones live in different areas, so your vet is the best one to advise you. The medication only kills the worm in certain life cycles, so you need multiple treatments. My puppy was treated 3 times, yet I still found a giant worm in her bed when she was 4 months old! Also, some of the canine worms can infect people so another good reason to deworm your puppy. I don't want to have a tapeworm!

Heartworm is different, and is spread by mosquitos. It is something that you immunize against and is important to do so before exposure (otherwise it is too late). Only your vet can tell you if you have it in your area or not (it is a huge worm that literally lives in the dogs heart and causes heart failure; gross).
