I have a 5 week old puppy, and I still have to feed her formula. After she eats she shakes like she is cold.
Could it be that she is eating to much?
Any answers would be great!

At 5 weeks old your puppy should be able to eat puppy food (dry food soaked in warm water for 10 mins before feeding works well), and be learning to lap milk.
Feeding formula, especially from a bottle, shouldn't be necessary unless the puppy has health or developmental issues.
I'm not sure why she's shaking, if she eats until she looks as though she's going to burst, that's not a good thing and could cause her to shake if she doesn't feel well. It could also be that she gets very hungry and is over-excited when she eats, too much stress/excitement could make her shake.
I'd really recommend asking your veterinarian about this, or you could try my Ask A Vet page. Good luck with her.
