geriatric dog has stopped eating

Hello, I am new to this forum, but would like to ask for some help with this. My 14 year old spayed sheltie-cross has stopped eating. It has been going on for about 2 days- can't see the vet until MOnday.

She seems otherwise healthy- wants to play, go for walks, and is drinking just fine. I recently had the vet give her a hormone shot to prevent incontinence- she has had several over the last 3 years with no ill effect, but I can't help but wonder if there is a connection.

Has anyone had this happen before? How did you get the dog to start eating again? Is this the beginning of the end?
