Stosh First, I have to say that my dog would be extremely jealous if he knew yours was getting to eat rabbits! My vet was referring to wild rabbits with the possibility of tapeworms. If the rabbits plan on feeding are farm raised that shouldn't be an issue but you might mention it to your vet in case he/she wants to worm your dog at his annual physical.

Rabbits that are commercially raised should not have fleas and even if they do, freezing the carcass for a few days will eliminate the problem.
Thanks! I've spoken with a farmer, who's going to start breeding rabbits for me, so I think we'll be fine as far as parasites for the most part, because they will be frozen when I get them.

Do you remember which type of worm, and if they are specific to rabbit?

Curtis I skinned the next one that I gave him. He hasn't turned up his nose at anything yet.

I know a guy who lives in the country that said he'd breed them for me. I may look in to that option.

Lauri & The Gang If I'm buying rabbits I don't buy with the fur on - I don't want to pay for what amounts to just filler.

When my guys catch wild rabbits they eat everything.

lovemytb I buy rabbit chunks. I cannot stand seeing dead animal. I am semi-vegetarian and its been difficult for me to feed my puppy raw but I understand that's important for his well being and his tummy issues were resolved once I started feeding raw and removed kibbles from his diet. I buy ground rabbit and chunks without heads. I just don't want to see any of it when I put it in his dish. The ground rabbit comes with fur and all the guts but the chunks come skinned. My puppy who is now over 70lbs takes his time to eat the chunks but he leaves not one trace of it. I feed in his crate and when he is done he even cleans up the tray of the crate. He thinks rabbit is the best thing ever. I think its his favorite raw food. I personally have a very hard time feeding him animal chunks but I do it for him. I figured in the wild he would have killed the rabbit and ate it so I guess its ok to just give it him. Sorry to those that own bunnies. Its a sad and cruel world but I do it for my dogs not myself. I would never eat rabbit or any meat for that matter.
