    Default Vomiting frothy white foam when exercising

    Hi everyone
    I have a friend with a bulldog 11 months old and when he plays with my Chumley at the park he often vomits white frothy foam sometimes with a few bits of dry food in it ,it usually only happens when he is playing , running around ,he has a very long tongue and does not dribble like my Chumley .any suggestions on why this would be happening

    Sounds like over exertion to me.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I think it's an elongated soft palate. Wellie would also have foam and kibble come up, even with mild exertion - until we had it shortened.

    I don't have any experience with elongated palate, but I was also going to suggest it was either from over exertion or over heating.

    I would suggest that she have the palate evaluated, seems like it may be the issue. I had two with the problem, and this happen when they were playing or running

    Yep, I agree, probably elongated palate.

    Yes, sounds like elongated palate. Castor vomited like that too before he went through surgery. @nycbullymama has written a great article on Brachycephalic Syndrome here on EBN.

    Be very careful. He won't know to stop playing, until it is too late.

    Agree with everyone and pray they get him checked out immediately!

    Even with surgery to shorten palate, some bullies can't over exert and
    especially hot & humid days or too long walks or playing. Some bullies
    have extremely narrow windpipes (like a straw) and can't take in enough
    air to cool down after getting hot. They could lose him so easily ;(

    RIP beloved boy.
