She is not spayed, but not a breeding dog just a pet. I have another pet, a neutered male Chihuahua and they do mate sometimes when she's on heat, but her heats have been sporadic and not regular as she gets older.

Thank you very much for your advice. I will do as you suggest and hopefully get those tests done.
