Why on earth would they have you pick him up if he's still bleeding?
In my eyes that's them saying nothing more can be done here is parsley for vitamin K, antibiotics and pain meds and hope for the best.

I know dry air can cause nosebleeds, so that was where my thought process was. Air conditioning (and heat) can dry the air inside a home. I actually just bought a humidifier for that very reason.

If only it was that simple. In my mind set now is quality of life if the antibiotics work it was an infection if not its a tumor. I basically decided not to do any aggressive treatment because if he is bleeding this much which it has slowed down due to steroids its already pretty well set in.

Update: he is no longer sneezing which is good even though I have a feeling its the steroids he was given I also decided to give him back veggies he hasnt been able to have veggies in so long that I said the heck with it and gave it to him. He is happily chowing down on them now.
