My Belgian Malinois caught kennel cough. The vet gave him some antibiotics a week ago but he's still wheezing. How many weeks does it last before he's cured & non-infectious to my other dogs?

kennel cough is a virus, so antibiotics will only help with secondary bacterial infections. if your belgian malinois dog is coughing a lot you may want to get a cough supressant from your vet as prolonged hard coughing can lead to scar tissue that causes a chronic cough. duration of the illness varies, as does to potential for contaigen much like with the human flu.
