Lay dog on right side, pull head back, clear airway, use hands to cover muzzle and

blow 5-6 quick breaths into nostrils, 1 every 3 seconds,  check for pulse, if none, put both hands on chest cavity, where the elbow touches the middle of the chest, with palms down  between the third and sixth rib –  10 quick compressions, alternate this with continued mouth to snout blowing. Once dog begins breathing again – take to Vet immediately.
