just got a new pitbull pup her name is star. shes been drinking fluids and going to the bathroom still active but has a a small caugh. i went to vet and got antibiotics but no results yet shes been on the meds for 2 days........?
I agree give it atleast 4-5 days , if your don't see improvement by a week take her back to the vet maybe a different dosage is needed. Did the vet say what the cough was from? possible it is not a virus and maybe something environmental or allergy related?
If it's kennel cough it could take a week or two to stop. If she gets worse or she acts abnormal then go back to the vet. Kennel cough is a virus and has to run it's course, antibiotics are just in case she gets an infection from coughing so much. You can go to the health food store and get her Osha Tincture and give her that is a spoonful of wet dog food three times a day. It's a natural cough suppressant.
