Mercedes has started eating the delicacy..rabbit crap"...she never had this problem with eating any kind of poop before, now at almost 2 yrs of age I am having this gross problem!! I have tried ..leave it.. gave her a small smack onthe nose.... and even washed her mouth out with diluted vinegar..no go..as soon as she sees me out of sight, there she goes with the rabbit crap. It is cruel to keep her indoors all the time, but the thought is crossing my mind,just going out on a leash for pee and poop. I was wondering if she is eating this because she is lacking something in her diet or is ill...of course she gets ill and pukes from eating rabbit crap and also gets loose stoll fromthe dam stuff... . Could there be a problem with needing a vitamin or with anemia ,Iknow humans eat dirt , ice, hair, etc when they have pica,, which means soemthing is not right with their bodies.
Why are you so concerned? It's just a little poo...and it's mostly grass and fibrous stuff the rabbits couldn't digest. We have a ton of bunnies around here and all 3 of mine eat it...I just liken it to eating grass. I wouldn't worry about it.

I guess I better get withthe program and realize..dogs will be dogs. My neighbor scared me and said she will get worms from the pellets and that they may have a bacteria... of course that is coming from a woman who has a standard poodle who is 12 and never comes outof the house without her.My girl is a ruff neck of a rag a van, what got me worried was the fact that she never bothered with any sort of poop before and that this habit just started after she got spayed...I am grabbing at straws here..but thanks for the word not to worry. still it is yucky :P
In the dog world, yucky = good!*
Mmmmmmm, bunny poop is CoCo puffs, Deer dung is raisinettes and cat turds are tootsie rolls!
Bruce doesn't really care for bunny poo his favourites are elk or deer and his very most favourite.....horse.
Deer poop is a favorite of my two - they can sniff it out and scarf it down before I even realize that's what they are up to! I've learned to notstick my hand in a mouth to dig out whatever they have in it............poop and spit are a delightful mix!
