Hi dlgegg I confess to not having had to deal with this yet in my cats. However, I did some research for you and see a few things that might be of interest to you. First, the radioactive treatment should not have resulted in any nasal bleeding. I couldn’t find that commonly described as a

Got in now. Yes, it’s true that most of our conversations relate to FeLV cats, but Dlgegg has a lot of cats (like many of us on this chatline) and we also sometimes just see if others in the group may have experience with other conditions. Good information you have provided regarding
