Hello and thank you for using this site to help you.

It seems like you are offline at this time. When it comes to aged dogs they sometimes get what is known as old age disease or vestibular disease which is a problem with the inner ear. You may see head tilting , circling , eye twitching or darting. drunken gait, loss of appetite, and nausea. The good news is that it usually subsides within a few weeks. However if there is an ear infection causing this then you want to get that treated by your vet.
Some dogs also have strokes , but it does not affect dogs the same way it does humans and again it can be over within weeks. So it is best not to panic at this point but a good idea to have your dog get a hands on exam.
Here is a good video that goes over Vestibular disease https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUWRXUinWBY
Also if you google vestibular disease in youtube you will see many uploads of dogs going through this which is a good way to compare if this is what you are seeing. Not all dogs are as extreme as others so keep that in mind.
