    I don't think so. Bunny droppings are a (disgusting) favorite of my Belle. After all, they DO look like kibble! I don't know if they can pick any parasites up from the droppings, but they are not toxic.

    I would vote no because Cinder is like a hoover in our yard sucking up the rabbit poop. Seriously. And she's made it to 3 on a daily dose, and we have a lot of rabbits in our yard. (Although not as many since she started being able to catch them on occasion ;D) That being said, I don't know what the answer would be if you had a rabbit that had a disease. Let us know what the vet says.

    Nope...not toxic. My dogs hoover it up as well.

    When you consider a rabbits bland diet the poop might actually be quite nutritious!

    Ahhh yes, deer poop, my kids seem to prefer the log style, leaves a greener tongue and between the teeth snacks for later. Of course the all time favorite of Belle is Opposum poop. I can smell that 20 yards away, and is one of the few things in this world that will make ME toss cookies...that and vultures vomiting from about 6 feet above my head and it landing at my feet...but that's another story!

    I don't know anything about squirrel poop, but I know bunny poop is the only poop that you can use directly on plants in your garden, without having to compost it first. My dog is always eating my bunny's poop (and bunny's hay that finds it's way out of the cage), and never suffered any ill effects.

    Oooo- Caleb's two favorite "nature" snacks. He can't go out the door without running over to the rabbit cage and looking for "escapees" from the pan. He's so obsessed with deer droppings that he was able to find them beneath the ice & snow in the back yard yesterday.

    I don't think so. Rabbits eat their own droppings, as gross as it is. Also- it's mostly fiber, since they eat a lot of hay/grass...

    Tucker will sometimes find a dropping or two near my daughter's rabbits cage and snack on them. lol
    This is my dog. His name is Tucker. And we live in Ontario, Canada, eh! <br /><br />
