My dog has a cough and spits up. He is a 14 month old

My dog has a cough and spits up. He is a 14 month old Labradoodle. He has had the Bordetella vaccine. I took him to the vet, as I was concerned about his becoming dehydrated. The vet gave him a steroid shot, antibiotic, and cough suppressant/expectorant. That was about 2 hours ago, and nothing has changed. I fed him some boiled chicken and rice, which he continues to spit up. He drank some water when we returned from the vet's, and he threw that up promptly. I am just not entirely convinced this is Kennel Cough???JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?Customer: Not that I am aware of. Last night and this morning he was just spitting up clear fluid, sometimes mucous.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: He has been very healthy since we got him at 8 weeks, other than a bee sting he had a couple of weeks ago!
