My dog was diagnosed with kennel cough. Given the standard

My dog was diagnosed with kennel cough. Given the standard antibiotic and temaril p. Since being on the temaril, he's had zero coughing episodes. I know conditions typically get worse, and he has not. Whatever was causing it has not seemed to progress as he shows no other signs of being ill. He's eating, playing, chasing aquirrels and mailmen, barking at the kids on the street and such. The vet listened closely to his heart and lungs and heard nothing. He just said that his tonsils were slightly inflamed. Now, I'm not sure how he got sick. He doesn't interact with other dogs. He hasn't gotten loose. He went to a groomer 3 weeks ago, but the incubation period is 3 to 10 days, so he likely didn't get it there. So that scares me. But all things being said, he is perfectly normal while on the temaril/antibiotics coctail. Is there any kind of indication I would see that he is getting better? Or is the temaril just masking the issue and will he regress when we stop the meds?

I am going away day in a couple of weeks. Sometime around

Hi,I am going away for a day in a couple of weeks. Sometime around June 10th. I need to board my dog, but I am a little confused on vaccines he needs. He never got his Bordetella and canine influenza vaccines. Since he will be with other dogs, the kennel says these are needed for his overnight stay. The dates are pretty close, and I know vaccines do not automatically work. What is the latest he could get these vaccines and be protected from the illnesses? Or what is the time frame in which they start protecting him?
