    mia thanks so unless it gets worse ill probly let her be for a little while. shes two years old so shes in good health and seems to be the right age to fight this off.

    anywhere from 2-4 weeks is the norm. However, for some dogs it lingers around a bit longer. If he's eating & drinking well, then try & ride it out. HOWEVER, isolate him from any other dogs you might have. You can also try a tablespoon of Robitussin twice a day to help with the cough.
