We took my dog to the vet and her gave her some meds. It was been a week now....how do I know when they are gone?

In order to answer this question there is more information needed.
What kind or worms were they?
Was this medication vet perscribed or over the counter stuff (which won't work)?
How much did you give your dog?
Has the dog also been given flea treatment? Some worms are flea transmitted....tapeworms.
Were the meds meant to be given once or repeated?
Your vet should have given you detailed instructions on all of this. If the dog isn't treated for the right worms or not treated properly then the worms will still be there.
