Sometimes that hacking gagging sound can be a reverse sneeze. It sounds like they have something caught in their throat that they need to get up. You can stop an episode sooner by rubbing under the neck area. There are many videos on youtube of dogs with reverse sneezing if you want to see what it looks like.Of course grass eating is a symptom of nausea, so if she is doing that often it is a good indication of stomach upset. You can give Pepcid and the link below goes over dosing amount and side effects. I hope this helps!
