Hello, first of all, I'm sorry for the late reply. The symptom of your dog is headtilt. Considering your dog's age and symptoms, the symptoms can be caused by meningitis, middle ear inflammation, early dementia, etc. In particular, if it comes with invisible symptoms, it can be granulomatous meningitis or necrotizing meningitis.
In this case, you must visit the animal hospital and conduct tests including mri.
There aren't many things you can do at home. I hope you visit the animal hospital soon.
