I have a Pitbull female that just had 10 puppys. They are only 7 days old and some of them have these raised crusty bumps on their skin mainly on there backs. I have taken them to all kinds of vets. no one can tell me what it is on these puppyies.  It is a special breed dog.  I need help to find out what this is. The mom is from a champion line and she is not just a random dog for me. I need help on what this is on her puppyies.  If you pick the crusty bump, then it is a open sore on the puppy.  The puppies that are getting them are getting more each day. They are nursing off of the mom. The beding is being changed all the time. Can u help me with this problem that my pit puppies have? -Ginger-

Dear Ira,

Does the mom have or have had similar sores? What kind of chemicals has the mom been exposed to during her pregnancy and since giving birth? What does the mom eat?

Best regards,
