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.

One cause could be allergies.

Is it different to a 'reverse sneeze'?

This can be caused by irritation. Its a strange noise.

Yeah, it definitely doesn't sound like reverse sneezing. My dads dog does this often.

The only reason I don't think it's allergies is because it started right after the dental procedure, so it just seems to be related.

My cat had a cough for a solid 2 weeks after his neuter, we assumed from the tube. But wheezing would concern me because he could be having trouble breathing. Does anything trigger it?

I wouldn't think he would still be wheezing from the breathing tube? I would get him checked out if it doesn't get better soon.

One of my childhood dogs developed more of a wheeze than a cough after a surgical procedure. It took 5-6 days before it was gone.

Sounds to me more like a reaction to the vaccine/minor KC...

I'd just boost some vit. c and see where it's at in a few days... if it gets much worse or he gets lethargic, I'd take him in for an exam/antibiotics.

It doesn't have to be KC from the vaccine... They can still get KC when they are vaccinated. Sounds like minor KC to me.

The second time rosey went to the groomers, she came back with KC and was vaccinated too. (Was vaccinated that one time for boarding specifically).

I've not heard a lot of wheezing with kennel cough. But it is true that, since the vaccine only covers a few strains, dogs can still get it when they're vaccinated.
