Default Help: Lethargic Yorkie-Poo

I have two 11-weeks old female Yorkie-Poo's.
They are littermates, but they could not be more different.
One is very energetic and playful, and the other is very mellow.
The mellow one is getting more and more lethargic.
She eats OK (but not as much as she used to a week ago when we got them).
When we try to play with them (inside or outside), she lumbers around
*slowly*, finds a spot, and sits down. That's it.
She won't respond.
The other playful one comes to play with her. She sometimes playfully bites
the lethargic one, but no response. Lately the playful one has been licking
the mellow one all over her face and front paws. Still no response.
Is she gravely ill? Is the playful one sensing something (bad) when she
grooms her all over? Is this a temporary thing? (It seems unlikely, as she
has been getting more lethargic everyday, instead of getting better as days
went by.)

So far, the vet found only typical conditions for new puppies - intestinal
parasites and kennel cough. They have been taking medications. I will the
vet again, but wanted to hear from others who might had similar experience
with their puppies.

How long kennel cough typically last?
Since they are only 11 weeks old, they can not hold it over night.
I have been taking them outside for potty-training around 11:00AM and 2:30AM
for 5-10 minutes. It has been around low/mid 30's at night. I am sure it
won't help their condition, but how much (if any) would it have made their
condition worse?

Kennel cough lasts 14 days if it's treated.
It also lasts 14 days if it's not treated


Interesting and puzzling.
They are being treated for kennel cough (and intestinal parasites).
If treatment makes no difference in duration, what is the benefit?
Will the puppies get permanently harmed, if not treated?

You were trolled. Basically, any idiot can answer your
question and sound authoritative. It takes hanging out here
for awhile to sort through who's on the up-and-up and who's
just running his yap. You may or may not be given good
information here, but always, always have it verified by a
vet.

I'd be extremely concerned about a lethargic puppy, and in
addition to working with my vet I'd be raising issues with
the breeder, immediately.
