Rabbit Poop

Recommended Posts

I take my Galgos to a very large soccer field to run each day. Mousie runs and Ronnie just eats rabbit poop. He grazes the entire field with a muzzle on. So far it does not seem to be bothering his stomach, but my question is: will it mess him up?

Lila snacks occasionally, only in the winter though. It's not caused any problems.

I asked our vet about this and she said rabbits in our area dont carry any diseases dangerous to dogs. Emmy and Simon eat rabbit poop and are fine. They only eat frozen rabbit poop.

 

Perhaps you should check with your vet about diseases. If youre worried, i agree with the poop guard.

You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.

Further to what Jan said, my understanding is that rabbits carry Giardia, but not a form that infects dogs, so it basically just travels on through.

I recently lost a dog who loved cat poop and rabbit poop. I was concerned and asked my vet. She said that it doesn't hurt them but that it's just disgusting! I like the idea of the muzzle guard.

May be wrong but think dogs can get toxoplasmosis from eating cat poop. Guessing the risk is lower with an indoor than with an outdoor cat.

I've never had a dog have any issues with it. Frozen poop of any kind was considered a delicacy. Although I certainly didn't encourage it, I couldn't stop it.

And then there is squirrel,skunk, opossum poop and COMMERCIAL WORMERS. Any dog who digs holes, mouths dirt, buries things is exposed to parasites . Most of the heart worm meds also have other wormers included. I use ivomec and every couple of months back it up with goat wormer(panacur).
