Thanks Nanci, of course the blood work came back and he glucose is completely normal. So as weird as it sounds, it appears he was dehydrated. Albon can evidently cause that. I have had my Little Bear on Pred for well over 2 years and he is still doing pretty good. I assumed that was what was going on was related to insulinoma and I did not have anything on hand except honey. But in the end if you are dehydrated and as a result didn't feel like eating...given his reaction I just assumed it was worse than it really was. He is doing fine and is in fact perky and his old self...all I have changed is I am being compulsive with extra hand feedings with lots of added chicken broth. So for a change I guess the worse of experiences turned out to be a logical reaction and easily solvable; and the albon took care of the coccidia (testing of stools shows it is all gone) and all four fuzzies have normal stools.
