Good morning, can you tell me more about your girl?

1) Has she been boarded, groomed, had at extended stay at the vet's office, had a play date at the dog park or doggy daycare anytime recently? If so, when?
2) Is this cough persistent or intermittent?
3) Does she do any inward "snorting" or is this just coughing?
4) Does anything make it worse? Eating? Drinking? Exercise? Excitement?
5) Any vomiting? Diarrhea? Production with the cough?
