Kakadu, Black Lab. Last weighed in December 2015 (62

Kakadu, Black Lab. Last weighed in December 2015 (62 pounds). Recently been having seizures. He weighed 54 pounds (from last December). Vet took a ton of blood testing. ALL was normal. He is TOTALLY active, HUGE appetite, playful, etc. Just curious. If the weight loss was across these 7 months, then due to the South Texas heat and his age, I can understand the weight loss. The vet wasn't concerned. BUT (question) IF the weight loss was recent due to something ""serious"", then (1) would he show other symptoms like lethargic, loss of appetite, sick, etc.? And, (2) would something show up in the blood tests? The tech said they checked everything (liver enzymes, etc., everything). I was just a mixture of curious/concerned. As said, he eats like a hog, playful, active etc. Anything to lose sleep over???

My mother in law's 20 lb shih tzu consumed 60 tablets of 130mg Naturethroid between 4 and 6 this morning. We've tried getting him to throw up using hydrogen peroxide, but he gagged and swallowed it back down. He's behaving normally, normal breathing and heart rate, no lethargy or hyperactivity (it's 11 here). Is he safe, or should we bring him to the emergency vet?
