puppie sores

My 1 week old dachshound or weiner dog puppies have sores on their backs. I asked the male dogs owner and she said it may be from where the mother is trying to pick the pups up and making sores on them by puncturing the thin skin and keeps licking them making them worse. If any one knows what they could be please reply to me ASAP.

Could your puppies have ring worm?

This is a zoonotic(transferable from humans to animals and vice versa) fungal infection of the skin.

Puppies get rashes and scabs from being gnawed on by litter mates. At one week of age, I doubt this would be a problem, this soon.

I would take mom & family in for a vet check. Your vet will be able to set you up with a good puppy health care plan.
