Missing heats?

We just realized its been over a year and change since our 3yo has had a heat. The vet seemed concerned and ordered an abdominal ultrasound which we're getting on Monday.

Any idea what could be causing this?

We had an ultrasound of the thyroid and blood work, her total T4 is a little below normal range but very slightly and the vet said he didn't think that was it.

Are y'all sure she's not having silent heats, and you are just missing the more subtle signs?

Here's a website that gives the run down of different abnormal heats in dogs, and their causes. https://breedingbusiness.com/abnormal-heat-in-dogs/

No we're not sure. In fact that's what we thought at first but considering how much there was the first couple of times and for how long, the fact that over year and half has gone by we want to make sure that it's not actually a symptom of some underlying condition that we should be treating.

So the ultrasound showed her reproductive tract in good condition but her spleen slightly enlarged.

The vet drew some blood today to look for blood borne parasites. Does anybody know anything about these?
