What is vaccinosis and why haven't I heard of it before?
s an adverse reaction to vaccines that happens immediately (acutely) or occur over time (chronically). You haven't heard about it because it is a condition recognized almost exclusively by integrative and holistic vets and most definitely not considered by traditional vets.
How do I know if my dog has it?
Symptoms of vaccinosis include skin issues such as alopecia, interdigital cysts, pyoderma, calcium formations and ulcerations. Other issues include chronic runny eyes and conjunctivitis (tear stains in dogs, dry eye, chronic eye allergies); chronic vomiting, diarrhea, appetite issues; emaciation; pancreatitis, inflammatory bowel disease, GI lymphoma; chronic spasms and seizures (epilepsy, brain tumors); skin eruptions and swelling of feet and red feet pads; itching from lifelong skin allergies; and eruptions around the mouth (seen in lip fold dermatitis). That is, adverse reactions from vaccination may mimic symptoms of the very disease the vaccine was meant to prevent. Reactions may occur immediately or months or even years later.

These vaccinosis symptoms as pictured below are often misdiagnosed by traditional vets and labeled as “common bulldog problems”, when in fact, they are not.
In response to these symptoms, traditional vets prescribe a combination of more vaccines, apoquel and steroids, which only masks symptoms and makes your dog sicker.
