I have 2 dogs, a cat, 4 bunnies, and almost 50 birds. Most of the birds share a bedroom (free flying) with the bunnies. On one occasion – I found a tick taking a leisurely walk in the bunny/bird room. I frequently plucked ticks of my bunnies while they were outside, but none of them have had ticks since bringing them indoors. As for fleas – once – I found 1 flea on 1 of the bunnies. I plucked it off, and never found fleas again. The bird/bunny room has linoleun covering carpet, and half of the linoleum has layers of puppy pee pads and human bed pads. I vaccuum/sweep/swab weekly, I change the puppy pee pads daily, and wash the underlayment of human bed pads weekly. I have never found evidence of coccidiosis. I am honestly more concerned about my birds getting it, than the bunnies. Never seen evidence of worms. I treated my birds for coccidiosis and worms while they were outdors. Once I brought the birds in (for the winter), I stopped treating them for cocci and worms. I have never treated the rabbits for those problems, and never found any of those in the rabbits. Even with all those birds living overhead…
I wou;dn’t wory about it if I were you. Rather focus on understanding and reognizing the symptoms, so you can treat if you need to. There are wayyy worse things that are more common for bunnies to be afflicted by. If you browse the health/care section fo the forum, you’ll see the more common things that bunnies are afflicted with. I’d concentrate on understanding those.
