Proper Diet of 2 month old puppy and over nutrition is serious ?

Please help me out! I have a 2 month old female German Shepherd. She's on her regular diet of Eukanuba puppy starter. She consumes as much as recommended on its pack. Now,the problem what I am facing is ,her left paw is slightly getting over pressed on her regular stand as a consequence of over nutrition,as said by my vet. Please help me out and also mention in your answer, whether it its a serious issue !

1. At 2 months its very important to not allow GSD pups to grow rapidly, at its limbs will not be able to support the body resulting in bad or down pasterns, or limbs extending outwards from the paws or excessive bending due to strain or bow legs as we say in humans. See to it that it isnt gaining weight rapidly and fat. If not corrected at a early stage will result in permanent damage.
2. Never raise GSD pups on tiled floors.This again causes bad pasterns, limbs extending outwards from the paws.
3.Being maybe a new owner or a first time owner it is better to go by judgement rather than calculations.For instance they shouldnt gett excessive proteins which causes rapid growth, so my advise would be if ur pup looks fat or over weight or growing rapidly reduce the qty of food after consulting ur vet.

Is your house having Tiles or some smooth surface like Marble...this could also be a reason , try putting some matt or give her some rough surface to stand / walk ...again your dog is going to grow till 18 months...so sometimes it will be a momentary situation also...
