Default going into heat at 3 yrs?

As some of you know, i got a year old female maltese from Spunsilk maltese around June 2010. She was a year old at that time and the breeder told me that she had spayed her. I even paid additional cost for the spay. I wanted her only as a pet. She is now 3 yrs old and i just noticed today, that she has gone into heat and am quite shocked about it. This is the first time that i am noticing blood in the 2 years that she is with me. Now i just dont know what to make out of this. If she's spayed she wouldnt be getting into heat right? Please guide me on what to do. Thanks.

Maybe she has a urinary tract infection or bladder stones, other common causes for seeing blood. I would recommend getting her into your vet right away.

Definitely should not be heat!
I would get her in to the vet ASAP & let Jeannie know what is going on as well---she will guide you. She is a special lady!
Please let us know how she is doing!

I agree with the others....she needs to be seen by a vet for possible UTI, bladder infection, etc. Good luck and keep us posted.

I spoke to the vet now and he asked me to give half a pill of "Etamsylate" with food. He says that it would arrest bleeding. Is that okay?

He needs to SEE her. He needs to see where the bleeding is coming from (vaginal or anal). I don't know this medication but if he can't see you, please take her to another vet right away.

I would have her checked out to find out what exactly the bleeding comes from. Not sure that I would just give her something without knowing what is the matter. And yes, she might have some sort of infection. Please call your Vet back and make an appointment.

He shouldn't be prescribing something without first seeing her. I would call another vet and make an appointment before giving her anything.
