Has he been around any other dogs lately? Could he have picked up a mild doggie cold from them?
Does he seem otherwise normal? Happy, playing, etc.
Do you know what a "reverse sneeze" is? That might be what you're describing. If you google it, and then look at it on youtube, that might be what's up with him. If it is, it's nothing to be concerned about.

Sounds like it's probably a backwards sneeze. It sounds scary I know, but very harmless.

Which could be kennel cough. Has he been around other dogs or puppies? Has he been vaccinated against infectious tracheobronchitis? (which there are several strains of - not all covered by the vaccine, which can either be injectable or intranasal.)

If it is keenel cough, the puppy should have antibiotics to prevent secondary infections (kennel cough itself is viral) and a cough suppressent can be given to allow the bronchia to rest and heal.

I'm not sure that eliminating an onion in his stool would have any effect on him coughing/reverse sneezing...

Yes, you need to get your new pup to a vet for a physical exam and to get his vaccinations (there is a series of them to be done). Also, please do a search on this forum for tips on how to feed/care for a new puppy. There is a tremendous amount of information here. I have also given you a link below that will take you to the ASPCA website for a list of people foods you should NOT feed your dog. Hope this helps to get you started.

Onions are poisonous to dogs.
If your pup has only had one set of shots at age 4 and a half months, he could have any number of things wrong with him!!!
get to a vet, and please read some information on being a responsible golden owner.
I am feeling very sorry for your pup at this point.
