We adopted Ernie on Saturday from a local rescue. He is a 9lb mix, possibly mini dachshund, beagle and gerbil.

When we picked him up we were told he had kennel cough, but it's no longer contagious (??) and to give him the meds they sent home with us (in an unmarked ziplock)

So here it is Wednesday and his cough is worse. It also didn't sound like kennel cough, is productive and wet.

Took him to my vet and she said she didn't think she heard anything down in his lungs, that it seems upper respiratory. She prescribed clavamox.

How long would you expect until I see improvement? Honestly I'm a little concerned. He coughs a lot throughout the night and a bit during the day. We aren't getting any sleep as he coughs so much.
