since yastrday he is vometing I think he eat from the dog litter "Second Nature Dog Litter" i was going to train him but as soon Ii saw that he's eating it i moved it i hope i didnt do something bad to him.
But the shaking I noticed it before but I thought maybe he was just feeling sleepy.
And in general he is a healthy dog i think he love to play and run.
I just got him on February he was 4 months old.
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 6 months ago.
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you tell me, please, if Henny's shaking occurs at any particular time - at rest, when focusing on something like a food bowl, more when he's exercising or excited?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It's ok,
No only if he was just awake from his sleep and didn't get enough sleep this the time's that I noticed that.
And if he is very excited he voimt but I read that it's normal in french bulldogs.
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 6 months ago.
This doesn't sound serious, then. Vomiting, however, isn't normal when a dog gets excited. If this is happening often I would worry about how the muscles and sphincters in his esophagus and stomach are working.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Really! In a blog about French bulldogs they say that frenches voimt when there exited thank you for tilling me i will forward this information to his pet in the morning, He's at the pet clinic now for one night hope he will be will.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
He have a very sensitive stomach i can't give him any kind of treats and always test it on him to see his reaction but he loves Apples any suggestions for good quality treats for puppies
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 6 months ago.
There's nothing wrong with apples and if he likes his dry food and tolerates it well you can use that as a treat. Otherwise it's just trial and error with the many dog treats available over the counter.

By the way I'm from Saudi Arabia
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 6 months ago.
You're welcome. Yes, and you speak better English than I speak Arabic. If Henny continues to vomit talk to his vet about a condition called gastric outflow obstruction which is seen more often in brachycephalic ("pushed in faces") breeds such as Henny.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Hhhhh hope you can learn some Arabi,
I will tell him this morning ... thank you so much for your time have a nice day.

Hello again,
can i ask one more question ?
how many times do i have to feed him and how much, because sometimes i feel that he's not full and wants more he is about 5-6 months so I'm confused is it every meal 240ml or not.
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 6 months ago.
I don't know how many kcal are contained in the 240 ml. I can tell you, however, that for puppies at 50-80% of their adult weight the following is a guideline:Current weight15 lbs (6.8 kg) 738 kcal daily20 lbs (9.1 kg) 916 kcal daily25 lbs (11.4 kg) 1083 kcal daily
