Historically I have seen improvement in most cases with the first treatment but I have had a few cases that did take a second or even a third treatment to fully resolve. So I would continue the course, talk to your veterinarian about repeating a weekly treatment for a total of three weeks as a precaution to see if this resolves the sneeze

Please let me know how else I can assist you both today
