  • when you say "rabbit poops" do you mean real hard stool? If so this could mean that the stool is so hard it could be causing some tearing as it comes out. I may be wrong. I would suggest that the next time you take him in to the doctor be sure to mention it, and try to keep in mind what he eats prior to these episodes. If he is having hard stool, it may be caused by too much iron in sometihing he ate. But I would strongly suggest checking with the doctor or calling and checking with his nurse, they might have a better idea of the possibilities.

  • Many things can cause these symptoms. Constipation, Chrons Disease, thrush, allergies, ets... You should see a gastroenterologist, Ask your Primary MD for a referral.

  • The "rabbit Poop" could be not enough fluid, dehydration. Encourage your child to take fluids if this is a possibility.
