Actually you should never EVER feed a Saint Bernard puppy food. Saint's go through stages where they are thin and blocky as they grow. It's absolutely vital that you protect their bones. Since they grow so fast it is not recommended that they be fed puppy food or any food with extremely high protein. Also be careful to guard their hips and do not let them jump in and out of trucks/ SUV's while under 2 years of age. Female Saint's are naturally smaller than males. Also, depending on your weather, many dogs slim down during summertime. I wouldn't worry about her weight unless it becomes a problem and you see that she is not eating her food. You should be able to feel her ribs, but not really see them. More than likely, she is in a growth spurt and will fill out nicely before you know it. Please, do some research on what to feed growing Saints. Even research what I've said. It's very important to protect their bones and their joints.
