Kennel cough questions
We got our puppy Reno 3 weeks ago, and I took him to the vet, where he got a clean bill of health. He finished up his vaccines, and they gave him a bordatella vaccine. 6 days later, he was coughing teal bad, and coughing up white mucus. I took him back to the vet, but of course he didn't cough once, and they said I could give him half a Benadryl, maybe it was allergies. 2 days later, he was coughing and hacking stuff up more, so I took him back. This time he did do it in front of the vet. He has no other symptoms, and only really seems to cough when he is sleeping. He was given an antibiotic injection, and a cough suppressant.
A couple days later he seemed better, only occasional coughing spells at night. But in the last couple days, he has started coughing hard again, and coughing up the mucus again. He has no fever, has a healthy appetite, is gaining weight, and plays hard. Should I bring him back to the vet? Or does it take this long to go away.
I also can't help but wonder if it's my fault he got kennel cough, since I told them to go ahead and give him the bordatella vaccine. I thought I was doing what was best for him.
