Puppy vomiting every third day

I have a five month old long hair GSD. Every third day she will vomit up everything. I thought it was from her eating to fast so I bought her a slow feeder. I also stopped playing with her right after she eats. But still consistently she throws up. It seems to be every time we plAy with the rope toy. She's been eating blue buffalo large breed puppy food since the day I got her and no problems the first three months. I'm wondering if this is a serious issue or if maybe just normal with the breed. She's always energetic and never lethargic. And right after she vomits she'll try and eat it and still wants to play.

I'd check in and get advice from her vet, since that's the only sure way to know what's going on. That said, my Shepherd got horribly sick off of Blue Buffalo when she was a puppy and I haven't touched it since. Maybe switch her to a different brand with a different protein source?

Thank you. I won't be able to take her for at least a week and in the mean time in going to track her vomiting and the activities at the time to see if I can find a pattern. She's to small for her slow feed so she can still eat the same as usual so I'm not aite if it's a bloat problem or if she gets dizzy from playing tug of war since she shakes her head a lot

The last time she threw up was Wednesday (today is Monday ). So it's been a few days in between each occurrence

Good that it's not happening every day. Make sure she's getting lots of water so she doesn't get dehydrated. I'd still call the vet and explain what's going on to see what they'd like you to do until you can come in.

No, this is not normal. It could be the food or it could be something else. When Halo had giardia as a puppy she occasionally vomited. Keefer had giardia as a pup and he never vomited so I didn't realize that it was a potential symptom. Once we treated her she stopped.

Blue Buffalo has had some recalls for canned food lately. I don't know what's up with them, but something shady is going on with their beef source - something about high levels of a thyroid hormone? Not good. Just something to be aware of.

I would see what a vet has to say about it.
