Hi this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this....I don't know that antibiotics will help you with this but you can use Amoxicillin safely in pregnant dogs. If you let me know how much your dog weighs I can give you a dose to give her. Technically dogs do not go into standing heat or estrus until the proestrus (bleeding part) stops. So I am not sure you bred her at the correct time if she was bleeding when you bred her......anyway nonetheless let me know her weight and I will calculate a dose for you. Sincerely, DRB
