Hacking is typically caused by something getting into the airway or lungs. Could be a hair, lint glob, food, water..........

Reverse sneeze????

Floor licking could be she has found a scent from dropped food or just an interesting smell.

You probably need to do a bit more searching, investigating for the potential cause of the hack.

Wise choice to halt the diarrhea and nausea.

I had another thought about the "hacking", this could be an early indication of a parasitic worm. I forget which parasite, but I know one of them has a development stage in the dog's lungs, gets hacked up, swallowed, then takes up residence in the intestines.

So a trip to the Vet is probably a good choice. Have the dog tested for parasitic worms. Common parasites are tape, hook, whip, round and heart worms.
