I think the heat period is about 3 weeks...can't you call your groomer and ask what their policy is? If it's because she's a bit "messy" you can get those little panty things for her until she's done.

It is best to spay her, really. With each heat period, she becomes more susceptible to mammmary cancer, which is quite common in unspayed females.
