Turtle - Vitamin K Deficiency

My turtle may have a vitamin K deficiency

Bleeding through the mouth is a common indication of vitamin K deficiency. Lack of vegetables seems to be the main cause. To treat this you should give the animal vitamin K and change their diet to include more veggies. I also highly suggest taking them to the vet.
