Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for asking your question and trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 18 years of experience. I'm sorry to hear Ellie has been experiencing this.

Generally, when a dog has bloody discharge for this long it is probably not due to her being in heat anymore. My concern would be she has a uterine infection (pyometra) or a uterine tumor. The pyometra can become rapidly life threatening. Therefore, she would be best served by having her examined by her veterinarian. Be expecting some imaging, especially an ultrasound to visualize her uterus and ovaries.

Thank you
I am going to take her to the vets first thing tomorrow

If this is pyometra then surgery will fix it.

Please keep me posted. I am always happy to answer followup questions. You can reply to this question at any time to submit a followup. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. If there’s anything else I can do, let me know – it’s been a pleasure working with you and I hope to assist you again soon!
