My dog is almost 9 months old, around 35 lbs or so. I feed him Zignature (turkey currently but I switch it between that and whitefish).
I have been feeding 1 cup am + 2/3 cup noon + 2/3 cup pm.
He loves fruit and frozen green beans, so he gets a bit of that too.
The vet said to cut him back on food and feed only 2x day.
So my plan is to switch to 1 1/3 cup am and 1 1/3 cup pm.

The Zignature bag says to feed adult dogs 2.5 cups day, and puppies can be fed up to twice that.
What age is considered adult? Should I still be feeding him more?
He's not overweight, at least in my opinion.

My opinion is that he looks just right. I wouldn't cut his food. He is still a pup and growing. They are not fully mature until 3 years of age. When YOU think he is getting too fat, then you can adjust his food. (my op.):) [MENTION=18050]Delaney24[/MENTION]

Here is a good guideline for feeding the 1st year with a high quality kibble;

8 weeks1/2 cup 3 times a day
12 weeks2/3 to 3/4 cup 3 times a day
4 & 5 months3/4 cup 3 times a day
6 months to 1 year1.25 to 1.5 cups twice a day
