The bruises are from Vit k. You can ask probably the IM if she's open to some vitamins supplementation. It could help in the long run, for liver, etc etc. Thor's IM was 'nah' to everything. However, after taking w/some oncologist from mskcc ( yes, the human hospital and with some vet from overseas ) I supplemented w/anti oxidants vetri science cat ones ( and some cat vitamins from Europe ) - his quality of life improved dramatically. Not to mention his blood glucose and energy levels.
I am Betty. Hear me roar! 🦁Betty’s voice is coming back from the dental procedure she had earlier this week. I wish I had...
On a side note, checking 'gi fast balance paste' and other anti-diarrheic pet products, they do contain vit Bs, K etc etc etc. Ibs is chronic enteropathy, so diarrheas' or not imo this should not be overlooked. However, this is my experience - I would have NOT given Vit K without that vet encouragement - and it was complete pill ( like Pet Tabs I believe? I don't remember the name ).
Betty seems to have an amazing team, and you have way more experience and are more knowledgble in nutrition and cat life than our former vet. Betty was really smart to choose you!

I also have a favor to ask - I know Krista had problems w/fish. Would you mind sharing her animal biome report? I can post Miau's, but it's misleading: balanced, but doesn't look right to me, and he is miserable as ... well. Both Thor and Miau have problems with all thing fish, and it is not the protein. Fish oil, fish hydrosalate, fish hydrolyzed, gl mussels, algal oil ( and yeah, I can write everything ). oh, inulin too. Thank you so much.
