Default Wheezing after surgery?

So, Jackson had a dental on Monday.

He's been doing this wheezing sound on and off ever since. It's not like constant, but every few hours or so, he wheezes for about 30 seconds, like he's having trouble breathing, or allergies or something weird?

I know they said it was normal to have some coughing from the tube down their throat, but almost 5 days later?

My other thought was kennel cough but it doesn't really sound like it. But here's the thing, he had pre-op bloodwork on March 29th and was going to have the dental that Tuesday on April 2nd. BUT they tell me 'oh we didn't realize he didn't have his bordatella UTD' and usually they said it wouldn't be an issue, they could just keep him in their 'quarantined' room, but since it was Easter time, their kennels were all booked up or something. So they gave him the bordatella vaccine (which I didn't really want to do, ugh). Then they were like 'oh, it takes 10 days to kick in, so you can't do the dental this Tuesday'. Long story short... I was away the following week, etc, and dental ended up being this past Monday the 15th. (I know this makes it sound like a super incompetent vets office, but they really are actually really good, lol)

I know some dogs actually GET KC or whatever from the vaccine... but it would it have taken that long to kick in?

Or, do you think it's still just irritation from the tube? It's jut weird though because it's not a hacking, or a gag, or a cough, it's a WHEEZE.
