Default Sores under eyes

My 9-week-old puppy has two sores under her eyes in the same place on
both sides....about a half inch below the front of each eye. One
appeared last week and I assumed she brushed up against something, but
with 2 now and in the same place I wonder if there is something
anatomical. She also occasionally puts her paws down over her face
almost like a cat washing its face and I thought she might have
scratched the areas with her dew claws, but I don't know. Any ideas?
They look like little abrasions. Thanks, dkw

What does your vet say? Sounds like she may very well have demodectic
mange.

It sounds as if it might be mange. I'd be taking her to the vet.

And if it's sarcoptic, it's contagious.

Not to mention that there could be autoimmune issues that would
preclude vaccinating the dog. Best to have the skin problem
diagnosed before the next round of vax.

Demodectic mange in youngsters isn't necessarily suggestive
of immune system problems, and may be something that the pup
would outgrow. Still, there's been no diagnosis and it's
something that really ought to be looked at by a vet. It
could be something else entirely.

Well in a week it won't kill the dog, and if the vet things it's immune
mediated, then he won't vaccinate at that time anyway. He will
diagnose/treat and schedule vax for later. if it's contagious...
procrastination will only cost the owner more, but a week is a reasonable
time frame.. if the owner is warned that there may be a delay in vax and
possible further expense due to procrastination

I didn't say it was. There are non-mange autoimmune disorders that
express themselves in skin problems. It may be unlikely that the
dog has such a problem, but I'd want to rule it out before
continuing on with vaccinations. I think it's D-U-M to vaccinate a
sick dog.

and may be something that the pup
would outgrow. Still, there's been no diagnosis and it's

Exactly.

If it's *not* an autoimmune problem, then personally, I would want
to get that figured out now, so that vax could be given on schedule.
