We purchased a cocker spaniel apprx 1 mth ago since we brought him home he has a persistent cough. My vet advised me that a kennel cough can last as long as 5 wks however, I have noticed that sometimes our puppy coughes and wheezes as if having an asthma attach is that normal as well ? I'm very concerned that the antibiotic and the decongestant the vet prescribed has helped somewhat but our puppy is still coughing and wheezing.
I agree with your vet. kennel cough can last for 4-6 weeks and it is not uncommon to hear weezing. I usually treat with antibiotics and decongestant as well. vetcare
