Vaccine reactions happen a lot, but you don't hear much about it. My most recent rescue was over vaccinated before I got her. She lost almost all her hair, developed staff infection in her back, and lost a ton of weight. You need to work on boosting the immune system back up. His hair will eventually grow back. This site has a bunch of links to vaccine related information. http://www.pets4homeopathy.com/articlesvaccs.html
I have the same thing happening to my 1 yr old Maltese. He got all his vaccines last spring with the last one in May and now in December he's losing hair in the vaccinated area. Will the hair grow back will the brown spots/rash go away? Currently my vet is not doing anything about it and I'm worried.
