How long has he been doing this?

About 2 hours and it will stop for a little while after ice chips are given to him

Can you go to Youtube.com and watch a video of reverse sneezing and verify that's not what he is doing?

Okay, great, that helps. Do you have any of these: Prilosec, Pepcid A/C, Zantac

I have Prilosec pills

Okay, great. Give 20mg of Prilosec tonight. Then feed a bland diet tomorrow of boiled chicken breast mixed with white rice and see how things go. You can give Prilosec once a day for a few days. Hope this helps! I have a standard poodle mix and I adore him. :)

I gave him the pill and he coughed a couple times and a little white foam came out is that normal

That can be normal when pilling a dog. His stomach sounds like it is upset, so he may drool, might vomit, and will most likely have loud stomach sounds tonight. That will hopefully have subsided by morning.
