There are many types of intestinal parasites dogs can get--common worms include roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms, and whipworms.  Signs often involve the gastrointestinal tract--vomiting, diarrhea, etc.  If severe enough weight loss, lethargy, and anorexia can be noted.  Many dogs however are infected with worms but show no outward signs.
Have your veterinarian examine a fecal sample to test for parasite eggs.  Different worms require different medication so identifying the specific parasite is very important.
