You really shouldn't give your dog any medicine that was prescribed for another dog, unless so instructed by your veterinarian.  Moreover, you should NOT give your dog any human medicine for a cough, unless your veterinarian told you to. 

You may have a contagious infection spreading through all of your dogs, but you should establish what the infection is first, then approach a treatment plan.
