Newborn pups getting mouth-to-mouth

A newborn puppy fighting for its life and an oyster don't have a lot in common.

To Kim Malcolm giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to a mushy newborn it's all kind of obvious.

    Is it easy to overinflated the lungs?
    How much pressure is needed (ie a feather puff, a ping pong ball?)

    To inflate the lungs, extend the neck as if the pet is stretching the jaw far forward.

    Now there should be a straight airway from the nose and mouth back into the lungs. Close the pet's mouth and place your mouth around the end of the muzzle covering the nose and blow through the pet's nose.

    You should be able to see the chest expand.
