You should start deworming your puppies from 2 weeks of age and then every 2 weeks thereafter till they are 8 weeks old. From here on you can reduce the frequency of deworming to monthly (once a month) till they are 8 months old, following which you can then do every 2 - 3 months depending on what works for you. Personally I continue deworming my pups on a monthly basis even into adulthood simply because that is what works best for me. Whenever I reduce the frequency, I always notice negative changes in my pups coats and faeces, so I just continue deworming them every month indefinitely.

With regards to the drug and dose, you can use same dewormer you use for adult dogs but the dose should be determined by your pups' weight. Any brand of dewormer containing a combination of praziquantel, pyrantel pamoate and febantel should do the job. The dosage for most of them is usually 1 tablet/10kg body weight, but always read the instructions on the pack before giving to your pups.
