Vaccinations? My dogs are ages 8 and 4 and i have always

Vaccinations? My dogs are ages 8 and 4 and i have always taken them to the vet for their annual boosters. I have come to the realization that I don't want to over vaccinate them. They are due for DHPP, lyme, lepto, and bordatella. I live in north Texas and would like to know if the DHPP is really necessary to revaccinate every year? I decided not to give them bordatella since I don't take them to dog parks or other social events with unknown dogs. I don't understand why Rabies vaccine is given at intervals of 3 yrs and DHPP is every year? Also based on my location would it be advisable to vaccinate on lyme and lepto? I mean we sometimes get opossums and rabbits scowering my neighborhood.

A month ago we bought Pro plan food from a leading pet

A month ago we bought Pro plan food from a leading pet outlet store and put it in a container. We fed until almost gone and noticed a bunch of small moths emerging from the food container. Our largest boxer started a deep cough about a week before we noticed the moths. I did go back to the store and tell them. I bought a de-wormer and treat the dogs for worms. He still has the cough and he is swollen behind the elbows on the arm on his front legs. What can I treat the cough with? And do you know what is wrong?
