    Weren't you going to the vet with them all a day or two ago for a check up - did your vet not advise you?

    Worming should start at 2 weeks and 2 weekly thereafter until around the 12 week stage.
    Speak to your vet about an easy product to use for young puppies.
    2 week old will not be eating solids yet, so granules can not be added to their food. As you have mentioned a paste or a liquid will be best, given directly.
    When is Olive due for her next worming treatment?

    It's usually recommended that you worm adult dogs every three to six months, though I don't know if there's any restrictions on worming dogs who are feeding pups. Worming frequency may also depend on the product used, though, so beware of any advice given on the internet and ask your vet when there's any doubt.

    You should speak to a trained vet.
    Advice has been given, but if you are not sure you can also "google" worming products that are safe to give both young puppies and their lactating mothers. There are safe products to use from 2 weeks of age.
