I know you come here for some good advice, but sometimes the best advice has to come from a professional, like a Vet. They are the only
one who can tell you medically what is going on with your dog and
recommend a proper treatment for it. Sometimes we get lucky when
someone on here experienced the same type of thing with their dog.
I hope all the best for your dog.
Since the Loud noises are something new for your dog of 10 years old, and it has been going on for a week,
It sounds like a trip to the vet is in order.
The loud noises could be due to... indigestion..bacteria..parasites, or a partial to complete blockage. Be sure to keep an eye on him and make note of whether or not he has a bowel movement...bring a sample in for testing.
Lab work should be done on your dog also...he is 10 years old, which makes him a senior...so I would request to have a liver and renal panel done.
The indigestion could be due to an underlying disease, and the blood work would help to detect, and hopefully catch anything early.
Best Wishes to you and your dog...
Just to add a bit more weight to the advice given above ... yes, your 10yr old needs to see the vet. Dogs do occasionally experience an upset stomach, but this rarely lasts more than a day, so if this has been going on for a week, it could be something more and needs professional diagnosis. My first ever dog was a beagle. They are fab. Hope everything works out ok for you and your best friend. Tony
