Circling to one side can be due to an inner ear infection or a brain disorder. Some elderly dogs will also start doing this as a sign of cognitive dysfuntion or dementia. It can affect their appetite if the circling makes them nauseous. It would be a good idea to get her examined to ensure her ears are not infected. If it is a brain disorder or tumor, the vet can prescribe medications to help with symptoms and to maintain a good quality of life.
