Default What's wrong with my girl??

I'm suspecting kennel cough, but please help me out. Calling the vet ASAP when they open at 8.
My husband noticed on Thursday around dinner time that Willow (9 weeks old yesterday) seemed like she was dry heaving. I was out on Thursday night until about 9:30pm. When I came home I noticed that her belly, paw pads, around her nose/mouth were very pink and warm, and her ears were warm too. I was concerned so I gave her some water which she drank and sat up with her. She seemed back to normal yesterday morning (fever wise). She has a dry cough (I think it's a cough?). Whenever she tries barking she coughs. It was getting a little worse yesterday, but today is every single time she tries. Every now and then she will look like she's going to throw something up but nothing ever comes up.
Yesterday at dinner time she would only eat out of my hand, same with this morning, and she didn't drink anything this morning, I gave her a couple ice cubes but she just licked it once and walked away. She's been peeing/pooping normally. She's as playful as she normally is too.
Please help me out!! I just want my Willow girl to be ok!

She just went over to her bowl and took a long drink of water.

Hard to say what it is for sure by what you are describing, it could be kennel cough which is easily treated. For your own peace of mind it would be good to go to the vet. In the mean time you can offer her a small amount of honey to ease the cough

The vet was very busy today so we just talked over the phone. He told me to get her children's Tylenol and the dosage. Said to call if I notice it getting worse. I'm assuming I should wash her toys and bedding?

She doesn't have any nasal discharge, aside from the normal. Her eyes are runny though.

Starting to get more worried, she only ate a tiny bit of dinner and she's sleeping a lot (does Tylenol have that effect?). Her eyes are very runny. Not coughing as much but that could be because she's been less active today. She also loves outside and is most active out there and I haven't taken her out today (only for pee/poop breaks) - it's raining.

Do you have a thermometer to take her temp? Is she still pooping the same or has that changed in color or consistency?
