dogs eating wild bunny poop

I am wanting to know if it is bad for dogs to eat wild bunny poop?  My dogs seem to consider the little pellets
like they are candy.  
These rabbits do not have diarrhea.
I just had the dogs stools checked and they are negative.
They get a monthly dose of Ivermectin.
We may have to stick to the road for walks and skip the grass.

Yes, it is bad.   The internal parasites that ivermectin protects against, while of some concern, are not the real problem here.  Wild rabbits carry a number of bacteria and organisms that can cause lots of problems for pet dogs and cats.  Wild rabbits can carry leptospirosis, toxoplasmosis, and several other diseases that your dog can contract from eating their feces.  Pet rabbits don't have these problems, however in the wild animal population it's extremely dangerous for dogs to eat their droppings. Please take every precaution to make sure your dog doesn't consume any more of these "goodies".
