Personally I'd want to get to the bottom of it, and if my vet was not saying to bring her in I'd find a different vet that took such symptoms more seriously.
Think of it like this. If your child had bloody, soft, stool and you called the pediatrician asking if you should take her to the ER of if you should just bring her in to see him. You told the pediatrician that she was still playing, not complaining of pain, and still had a good appetite, and that DR said, "Oh just feed her a bland diet and keep an eye on her.", would you be comfortable with that advice, or would you be on the phone to a different pediatrician?
Something is going on internally, in her GI tract, that is causing her to bleed from the rectum. It could be something as mild as mildly irritated intestines, to something much more serious, it's best to get to the bottom of it since it's recurring.
