Inflammatory bowel disease is one of the adverse side affects associated with vaccination.  

From Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats, (Dr. Pitcairn is a DVM with a Ph.D. in veterinary immunology)  Under "Vaccination:  Replacing Acute Illness with Chronic Disease," p. 274-275: "While immunosuppressive states are not common in dogs, reports of their occurrence are on the rise.  I believe the massive vaccination program for canine parvovirus, which began some thirty plus years after we began vaccinating cats with feline parvovirus (panleuokpenia virus), is creating this situation in dogs. .... we have been seeing inflammatory bowel disease in dogs over the past five to ten years.  Prior to this it was virtually nonexistent.  I am certain that vaccination for parvovirus and coronavirus is a major cause. I commonly see inflammatory bowel disease that arises within a month or two after vaccination for one of these
viruses
."


If you click on this link http://www.angelfire.com/biz/frogholler ... lanco.html, you will be taken to an article by Dr. Dee Blanco entitled, Vaccines - Are They Safe for Your Dog?  in which she states  under the What Are the Adverse Reactions, If Any? that "Some of the illnesses you are familiar with include any auto-immune disease such as lupus, red cell aplasia, auto-immune hemolytic anemia cardiomyopathies; neoplasias such as fibrosarcomas, mast cell tumors, thyroid tumors, etc.; inflammatory bowel disease, eczematous ears, any dermatological condition, warts, lipomas, poor hair coats, stomatitis, periodontal disease, thyroid disease, and the list goes on and on. " are linked to vaccination.

Excellent information on veterinary vaccines is available at the links below:

Very interesting.  Adidas struggled with lymphoplasmacytic & eosinophilic IBD since he was a year old.  His 7 siblings did not have any problems, but 1 developed stomach cancer at four.

A presentation at the WSAVA 32nd congress discussed Immune Mediated Disease.  The presenter was Edward Hall at the University of Bristol.  He talked about the correlation between helicobacter and stomach cancer in humans.  He then mentions that it was recently recognized that histiocytic ulcerative colitis in Boxer dogs is associated with infection from an atypical, adherent, and invasive E.Coli.  They had not determined if this was transferred from the bitch (I hate that word) or whether there was a genetic susceptibility to the infection.

IBD is nasty stuff.  I'm glad there is finally more research being done.

Do you, by chance, have any additional info on this? I haven't found anything on PubMed. . .

I'll pm you more information when I get back home.  We're at the vacation home, and it's dial up here.  If you Google WASAVA 32nd Congress you should be able to get into the presentations.  The one by Dr. Hall is listed under Immune Mediated Disease.  There is also another presentation - "IBD not just a trash can diagnosis" you might also look at.

Thanks!

I would suggest anyone dealing with IBD also have a Spec-cPL test run at IDEXX.  This would show if there is any smouldering pancreatitis present.  Often the inflammed small intestine will effect the pancreas, and liver.

What a team.

Boy, do I feel rude! Thank you so much for the information. I apologize for posting this so late, but I don't receive notifications of new posts in my email.

I'm still not understanding what study this information was gleaned from (the study cited mentions only humans as this pertains to post-surgical patients). . . I'd be very curious to see the actual study as it pertains to boxer dogs.

Also tried a search for WASAVA 32nd Congress, which is supposed to happen this year in August in Dublin. . .

Thanks again for the info - I appreciate it! :)

would human vaccines potentially cause IBD as well, or is this only for dogs?

Interestingly, the American Animal Hospital Association's 2003 Canine Vaccine Guidelines (accessible at Leeburg Training http://www.leerburg.com/special_report.htm or  http://www.britfeld.com/dvm.htm scroll down to Canine Vaccine Guidelines and click on For .pdf file of the webpage to Canine Vaccine Guidelines article, click this piece of text.) state on Page 18 that [b:35e5qxe5]

You would Google WSAVA 32nd Congress.  Sorry I put an added A in by mistake.  On the left side, under Table of Contents you can search under Speaker.  If you look under, Hall, and Marks, you can find the presentations.  If you search under Mansfield there's also an article on Histiocytic Colitis in Boxers and Large Bowel Disease.
