|The concern with my dogs eating bunny feces(they eat the night stools-soft dark grape like clusters) is coccidiosis which can be contracted by eating night stools about 3 days old(according the ARBA Raising Better Rabbits and Cavys book). Which is why rabbits eat directly eat them from their vent and do not ingest dropped stool. Coccidia oocysts lie dorment in the rabbit intestines until out of the body for a few days.
To the reply about the dog being sick from eating rabbit feces, it may have been coccidiosis. Our dogs will sometimes sneak and eat the stools behind our back, we have yet to have issues, but I wouldn't advise them eating it.
