It's definitely round worms? Looks like spaghetti? Due to the life cycle, of roundworms, pretty much all puppies are born with them, which is why it's so important for breeders to begin deworming them at regular intervals starting at around two weeks of age.

The usual medication for roundworms is pyrantal pamoate (a common brand is Nemex 2), but your vet might want to try fenbendazole (a common brand is Panacur). It's very inportant that you follow the directions about repeating doses, since the medication isn't effective against the eggs.

If she has loose stools that you are having trouble picking up with a scooper, you might have to result to using a pick-up bag and tearing the grass out to get as much as you can.
