I have a 5 year old female husky that has been fixed for 3 years. About every 5 to 6 months she starts giving off a scent and my 2 males are constantly trying to breed her. She is not receptive, and the boys have the scars to prove it. I've spoken with the veterinarian that did the surgery and he says that it is normal.
I would like to see if the consensus is unanimous. And is this going to affect her in anyway?

I wouldn't call that "normal". If you are certain she didn't have an OSS, as mentioned above, it's possible that the vet missed some ovarian tissue when she was spayed.

Both times I asked, I was told that everything came out. So if they missed some of the ovarian tissue, it is possible to get this side effect?
Something I failed to post in here, was that it lasts about 6 weeks.

(Not a vet)

Yes, as far as I know if there is ovarian tissue left, it could produce the hormones needed for a heat.

But, any vet who says that "everything came out" AND that a spayed dog having heat cycles is normal would get a big old question mark of distrust from me.

I'd wager that you'd know if the dog had an OSS when you paid the bill for the spay-- they aren't cheap and not all vets even offer them.

I think if budget allows, I would considering an ultrasound at a different vet clinic to see what is still in there so you know what may a concern latee
