Good evening, This is Dr. Stevens, I would be concerned at her age of severe dental disease or an abscessed tooth. Have you had any dental work on her or checked her teeth? Other possibilities are nausea and sores or ulcers in the mouth. Dogs that are sick to their stomach will drool alot and not want to eat.

Is she otherwise normal? Not falling over, still some what playful? How long has she been without food? If it would give you peace of mind you can take her to emergency to get her evaluated and then follow up in the morning with your regular veterinarian.
