We recently doubled Cass's dose of thyroid meds with no symptoms of hyperthyroidism resulting. She's about 45 lbs and went from .2 mg twice daily to .4 mg twice daily. We use Pala-Tech, a chewable. As I understand it, dogs can clear an excess of thyroid meds fairly easily and aren't very likely to show signs of hyperthyroidism.

I hope the blood panel gives you some answers tomorrow I know how worrying an unexplained weightloss can be
