Default Sick Pup

Hello all. About a week ago I picked up my - then - 8 week old puppy. Brought her back home and she hit the ground running. Absolutely loved my other dog, wasn't skittish or shy. Showed no signs of anxiety or anything. As I said, I picked her up on the 30th of June. Since then, she has thrown up three times. We feed her the same diet as the breeder did (Diamond Puppy) - 3 times per day half a cup soaked. I'm really not sure as to what is causing this. It appears to be all food that is thrown back up. We fed her dry food earlier today to see if it would make a difference and she threw that up, too. She isn't acting sick or fatigued, either. Any ideas???

Thanks

Is she vomiting (deep full body heaves), or regurgitating ( open mouth and food comes out, no heaving)

is it possible she is wolfing her food down to quickly , feeling competition from the other dog.

Feed her separately and let her have peace and quiet when eating .

They are fed separately. And as far as the vomiting and regurgitation, today she regurgitated it, but that was the first instance that she had. Other times she was heaving. She ate four hours prior to the regurgitation today.

If you think she is eating too fast, there are types of food bowls that help in slowing down the eating. If you noticed that she is eating grass, that could also cause it. If it continues, I would take her to the vet.

She actually eats rather slow. That's what has me confused. No grass eating, either. She just threw up bile because she skipped dinner. Just wouldn't eat her food. I'm going to look into weaning her over to the puppy food that we fed our other GSD, Zeke, whenever he was a pup. Never had a problem with him. Her stool has not been completely solid, either.

Has she been checked for parasites and giardia?

She had a vet check almost two weeks ago. Clean bill of health. I am starting to wonder about giardia, though.
