Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. There are all sorts of infestations the puppy can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?

I am sorry to hear Samson has worms, but that is fairly common in young puppies. When you worm a puppy that has a lot of worms, you can see diarrhea and worms passing, as the worms are dying. This should not last more than a day or so.
