Q. I've read coconut oil will help with my puppies kennel cough. Is this true? Already been to vet and received antibiotics and cough med. No improvement

A. Bear in mind Kennel cough is a self limiting condition, which means it usually resolve itself without treatment BUT it can take up to 2 weeks. In the meantime continue giving antibiotics and cough medicine as often as prescribed.
Coconut oil is not likely to do much difference unfortunately. It's not going to harm him but I cannot recommend the treatment with coconut oil either.
If he is happy in himself and eating fine, try being patient and let time do it's job.
