My dog has been eating rabbit feces frequently since last

My dog has been eating rabbit feces frequently since last fall. We have a rabbit population explosion this spring. She vomited her evening meal sometime during the pre-dawn hours this AM. The vomit included whole pieces of dinner kibble (swollen from being moistened in her stomach) and rabbit feces. She vomited a 2nd time after eating this morning's breakfast. I did not see the contents before she re-ingested it. Otherwise, she is acting normally except for bad breath and occasional flatulence (neither normal before this rabbit feces eating began). What concerns do you have about this behavior and reaction? Thanks -- JohnJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: Can infectious disease or parasites be transmitted by ingesting feces from rabbits? She (Iris) is on a prescribed monthly dosage of Sentinel Spectrum parasiticide for heartworm, flea and intestinal worm control. Her blood test for any of these was negative last winter.

7 yr old male Shih Tzu named Butters. Not eating his dog

7 yr old male Shih Tzu named Butters. Not eating his dog food well has lost 5 lbs in last month. Weighs 14 lbs. He has been eating earth worms and was concerned he might have bacteria infection so took him to the vet. Found out he had bad teeth, they put him on Clindamycin 75 mg and he goes in to get his teeth cleaned next Wednesday. Since he has been on the antibiotic now he won't eat at all, lethargic, panting and breathing hard and makes a groaning sound. We have been feeding him through a syringe chicken broth and yogurt. He is very weak. Concerned the antibiotic may be doing more harm than good.
