Roundworms...yum.

Just took my new pup in to the vet for deworming and booster shot.
Later that day in the park, she let lose of a rather large amount of
dead worms (didn't know what they were at first, looked like she'd
just shat a clump of bean sprouts; looking online showed them to be
roundworms).

My question is this; would the oral deworming she just undertook at
the vet get rid of this current bout, or should I take her in for another
dose (or get some OTC stuff) to make sure they are all gone?

Found an answer to my own question:

This probably explains why she seemed a bit lethargic to me,
and easily tired.

I kinda expected her to be bouncing off the walls, which she
hasn't been since I brought her home last week.  Hopefully she perks up.
I like to walk  ;).
