1) I would see a second vet. You want one that will hear you.

2) I'm guessing kennel cough, which can be hard on a young pup. The other one is likely to get it too. You can't "cure" kennel cough it just has to run its course, but you need to watch out for complications like pneumonia. The vet probably gave you antibiotics as a precaution. However, I may be all wrong since I'm not a vet and I haven't seen your dogs.

3) Sick dogs should not be vaccinated.

4) Most vets will not recognize OTC shots, because they have no way of knowing if they were properly stored and handled, or if they were given proplerly, or if they were given at all. A lot of authorities won't recognize them either.
