Amoxicillin/clavulanate or Cephalexine two empirical choices in case of metritis, as they should be effective against causal bacteria and they're safe for the nursing pups.
Tribrissen is used only if bacterial sensitivity testing shows it's the best choice, and if there is no better alternative, since all trimethoprim./sulfa drugs are excreted in milk and should be used with caution in nursing animals.
