Dog bleeding from anus.

Species: Dog
Breed: Belgium Melanoise
Age: 5-8 years
My dog is slightly bleeding from her anus, but it isn't noticeable until she sits down and leaves a mark or until I wipe her rear end. She's eating fine, drinking fine, and her energy level is the same. She has been spayed.
