Rebecca :

There are "mismating" injections that your vet can give. It is not guaranteed to work, nothing is 100%, but a shot of estrogen, or "ECP" in the first 24 hours may abort a pregnancy.

Sorry, I was still answering!
It has side effects: possible prolonging of this heat period, increased risk of breast cancer (this shot really should be done only once), or her next heat being delayed.
There is another medication, Lutalyse. You can wait to see if she is pregnant, at 28 days from now, and if she is an injection of Lytalyse should abort the pregnancy (again, not 100%).
