    I would let your Vet see her.

    It's very possible she has a UTI.

    has she been spayed ? If it is not a health problem such as UTI , it be could she is stressed or anxious about something .

    I would get a vet check - could be uti, season coming, phantom pregnancy, pain, etc.

    It could also be that she has been giving subtle signs of anxiety and not wanting to be touched/disturbed (especially by strangers) which have been missed/ignored and she has resorted to snapping to stop the interaction.

    Manage these interactions (avoid if necessary) and put her in another room behind a dog gate before people enter the home, otherwise she could fall foul of Dog Law.

    This chart is useful to recognised signs of anxiety
