hi, i currently have a pit bull pup, american pit bull terrier at 12 pounds
currently feeding him 3 times a day half a cup per meal, is that enough?
and when do i switch to adult dog food and when is he considered an adult?
he is currently 3 months and 7 days by the time this is posted.
comments and suggestions would be very much appreciated

Sounds about right as far as portions but go off your dog if he is still hungry after or he is looking thin then you can up it maybe 1/4 of a cup or so. I prefer my pups to be a bit chunky so seeing ribs or anything I would up it. { some like seeing ribs though, so doesn't mean your dog is thin}. As for adult food we switch ours over 10-12 months of age depending on the dog. We had a really large boy who was just growing to fast and the vet got us to switch him over at 8 months to adult formula.

Your pup should eat twice a day by 16 weeks old or so and for a pittie it seems like 2 cups is a good amount but go more by how the dgs looks and adjust. Some of my dogs eat 2 cups a day some eat 4-5 cups and hey are all the same size. Each dog is different.
