So I adopted a dog from an animal shelter on Friday and the shelter was incredibly disgusting. I am working with a rescue group to help get him adopted and she gave him bordatella on Saturday. He started coughing yesterday and it was just white foam, but is has persisted today and is now a yellow/greenish color phlegm he is coughing up. He also will not eat or drink and is very lethargic.

I plan on taking him to the vet tomorrow, but are there any suggestions I can do to help make him feel a little better tonight? Also do you think that because she gave him the bordetella on Saturday, this could be a reaction from the vaccine and now his body is just showing temporary signs of kennel cough? Or could the virus/bacteria been dormant in his body? Or could it be pneumonia?

Thanks!
