This does not sound anything like diabetes. What on earth did the vet say?
Oh, and yes, saw the edit on the vitamin C. Yep. Easily can cause diarrhea. Anything over 50 mg can certainly be easily implicated.

Also, as far as the Vitamin C goes, I am giving him Rugby's liquid vitamin C which I noticed has sugar in it??? I am giving him 1cc. I was giving im extra to supplement for the lack of veggies. too much??
ok, so here is some good news! I do not want to get ahead of myself, but it's the strangest thing....Yesterday I gave Sonic his Oxbow Pellets (a mixture of the plain & organic pellets) his hay and some fresh organic grass.......and wouldn't you know it, we have solid doody! I mean we are 150% better in the course of a day! LIke I said it could be a false alarm, there have been times where it was solid we did a happy dance and within a day we had blobs again, but any thoughts?? No meds, no probiotic powder nothing I just gave him, pellets, hay, grass & vitamin c ..... I am going to conitnuie on this path & see what happens.
Thank you all so much for the advice. I have also been trying to deal with this from home because it has been quite cold here in the east coast and I really don't want to take him out in the elements unless it is an emergency of course. I like to keep them at their appropriate temperature at all times. I dont want to take him out in the cold, drive to manhattan, have them put him under to take more tests and stress him out if it is not totally necessary. This has been managable from home, thus far. Thank you all again.
