OK, thanks. Is his belly painful or tight when you push in on it?

A little and it's been making a lot of noises
Expert:  Dr. Drew replied 7 years ago.

OK, thanks for your reply. I would suggest having him seen by a veterinarian in order to have his abdomen x-rayed to look for signs of a blockage, which is common in young dogs, as a result of swallowing foreign objects. Without treatment, continuted vomiting can cause severe dehydration, weakness, and even death. Shaking can be a sign of pain, or weakness.
