I have a dog with this condition as well. The dose all depends on the size and what level his thyroid is needed at. I would get a copy of the last thyroid test you had done on him and see what is correct, you can always ask another vet. My dog is on the same amount as your dog, yes, twice a day. He is 7 and around 50 pounds. I try ever so much to give him his medication 12 hour apart, like at 7 am and 7 pm...I am not always good about that :(
He has been on this for about 2 months and I was told by my vet that the usual treatment is to bring the dog in every 6 months to retest and make sure they have the right dose. My vet is nice in that he will allow me to get a tech to take the blood and only charge me for the test. I have several pets so that really helps me out.
