Well, if the rabbit died of old age or from some terrible sickness, chances are the dog wouldn't have half decapitated it. And it wouldn't bleed much if he did. Heart's not pumping, so...
But your right, I would rather know how the thing died. Of course if you gut it and wash it good and then stew it good and long with some onions, celery, and spices, and then add some potatoes, carrots and turnips in the last half hour, you will probably kill anything that might be lurking...
Go easy on the onion, and if you can't stomach it, you can always feed it to the dog. The dog will LOVE some rabbit stew, potatoes, carrots, and all.
