Antibiotics from another dog likely won't help him in this situation. It sounds like he's having a reaction to the vaccines that were given. He can receive 1-2mg/pound of body weight of Benadryl every 8-12 hours. For pets avoiding taking medication readily, you will likely need to using a pilling technique like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P6NfbxeLX0 I would also contact your vet's office to let them know of this reaction. The next time he goes in for vaccines they will likely want to premedicate with Benadryl and short-lasting steroids to reduce inflammation and discomfort. Your vet may also prescribe an NSAID to help with the lethargy and any discomfort, as well. From this point forward, it may be necessary to have him premedicated
before all vaccines to ensure that he doesn't have the same reaction.
