I am sorry to hear you are worried about Max. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
Has a blood test been done since starting him on soloxine to see if the dose of .2 mg twice daily is not too much or too little?
Are you talking about 12 to 14 oz of dry dog food? About 1 1/2 cups? I would feed a Pug that should weigh around 22 to 27 pounds 1/2 cup twice daily and no table food or treats.
Were any other blood tests done besides the test of his thyroid level? There are other hormone conditions such as Cushing's disease that could cause weight gain despite being on a diet.
