That really isn't the same as a hot dog, but I see what you are saying. Still, giving a rabbit meat is a bad idea. After birth is eaten by almost all mothers. The proteins in it are not the same as muscle meat. There are a lot of things people do that are not good for the animals they keep. Often it is due to misunderstanding a situation and thinking something fixed it that didn't, or they were taught wrong. Since none of the animals died from the "fix" they assume it worked and is a good thing. For example, when the first gorillas were placed in captivity the scientists keeping them wrongly thought they were predominantly carnivorous. As a result they fed the apes nothing but meat. The gorillas ate it and lived but it was not healthy for them. It shortened their lives. The scientists did not realize this for quite a while as they were unaware of a gorilla's proper life span. I would bet the person breeding those show rabbits doesn't keep them for 7-12 years. Anyway, just because something can be done, doesn't mean it should be. Just because someone breeds show rabbits doesn't mean they understand a rabbit's digestive tract. It is often amazing how little some people who work with farm animals actually know about their biology. A lot of stuff is superstition and they don't even know it. My father in law, who has farmed all his life, was convinced you have to have a rooster to get eggs. He is a smart man, a good farmer, but it is hard for him to let go of what he thinks he knows. Perhaps we are all like that to some degree.
