baby dog

hi everybody!
we have this little baby dog. it's a girl, 7 weeks old now.
She was the smallest in the litter, but very strong; like the smallest ones often are - a little fighter. I'ld say she is perfectly happy, like to play, is smart etc.
3 weeks ago, the first pimples showed up on her head. I was told, puppies get that sometimes. And indeed, some others in the litter had them too.
She has 4 zits now. well, there is fuer on them, so one cannot really see, what they look like, but i 'ld say, they come close to chicken pox. they don't seem to itch, they are just there. one is on top of the head, one a little down on the middle of the nose and one on her cheek.
She got her first vaccination last wednesday and deworming juice, plus, becases all the puppies and the mom and almost every dog in the neighborhood has a stomach flue, and our dogs had the runs, she also got beptobism and some "puppy-anti-diarrea-whatever pill from the vet.
I was totally against it, but the dog doesn;t really belong to US, but to my boyfriend, so i was not allowed to interfere.
Anyeays in the last few days, i recognized, she is licking her burr, and it smells bad. I know this from my dog, it seems to be the anal glands are plugged, which happens quite often in dogs - for whatever reason.
i was thinking of giving the little one something, but with dogs.... i am not so good in finding the right remedy. any suggestions?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
1 dose sulpur 30c (homoeopathic remedy)--no repetition of dose.

hold off on other vaccines for at least 90 days

best to give fresh meat --when feeding--but if unable make sure food contains no soy products.

thanks john!
hoped you'ld say that, that's exactly what i had in mind, but wasn't sure, since it's a dog...and a brand new one... i can't read its mind :-)

hi there--any vetranarian can show you how to empty the anal glands--some dogs do it naturally when they relieve themselves--other do it when frightened---some need a gentle but firm human hand to help them--best to you--LoveMyDog
