Hello. At this age, you can usually get by with just using baby wipes to clear out any mucous and then an infant bulb syringe to suck the mucous out of the nose and back of the throat. These brachicephalic breeds will tend to produce more mucous, so you have a little more maintenance with their airway. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
