About a week or so ago we had to take my dog to the vet for ear surgery. Anyway, they required he get all of his vaccines for Rabies, Distemper, Parvo, as well as Kennel Cough. Well here we are a week later and he seems to have developed symptoms close to Kennel cough.

He keeps coughing and then sometimes he spits up white phlegm. My mom said he threw up his food earlier, and he was having diarrhea but that seems to have stopped.

We are going to take him to the vet, but I was wondering has your dog had an allergic reaction or developed symptoms of a disease from a vaccine?
Well, he was wearing one of those plastic shield things around his neck. There was also a rope on it, when we cut the rope off he hasn’t coughed since. We put the plastic thing back on and he hasn’t coughed. So I assume it was the rope the vets put around his neck that was the cough of this.

If he isn’t coughing anymore in the morning then it basically confirms that it was the rope. But if he does then we’ll take him to the vet again.
We took him to the vet and they did an X-Ray and said his Lungs and Airway in his throat were inflamed. They said that it could’ve been from the vaccines, the medicine for his ears, or even an allergy. They gave us medicine to give him to help ease the cough but I don’t think it is working yet because I just got home from work and he was coughing again.
