Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. In a dog her age showing her signs, I would be concerned about her having eaten something spoiled, intestinal parasites, a GI virus, or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Are you seeing any blood or mucus in her stool? Could she have gotten into the garbage?
