I recently saw a video of a dog eating a rabbit whole with the fur & all. Is it ok to feed your dog rabbit with the fur still in tact? My dog is too small to consume the whole rabbit at once, so I would chop it in half, but I am wondering if leaving on the fur will upset his digestive tract? I wanted to ask some advice before doing so. Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks :thumbsu:

I've never fed them with fur on, but if they were to catch it themselves that's how they would eat it. And they likely would pull a lot of it off and spit most out. They may just poop some hairy poops. just be sure its flea free. Is it wild rabbit or domestic? You may want to freeze it for a couple weeks or so first if wild, considering all guts are likely going to be eaten. 

 

I have fed whole chickens, and the dogs pluck them themselves. It looked like a feather pillow exploded in the yard...They spit out all the feathers so hair may be the same.
