How long since he's been wormed or since you've taken a stool sample into the vet? Is he losing weight, gaining, or staying the same?

You might watch him poop tonight and take a closer look to see if it looks as though there are worms in it.

I didn't see any worms and he is gaining weight.. I just don't understand it. He had a antibiotic and steroid shot 2 weeks ago for an ear inflamation.. but I don't think it would remain in his system this long...

Suggest you take this up with your dog's vet. You might take in a fecal sample for testing just in case. Limit food/treats to prescibed recommended amount in the meanwhile so he doesn't put on more weight as that isn't healthy either.
