Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Thank you for your question. Blood from the penis shouldn't be related / from the eating of that rabbit. Eating of a rabbit would be more suspect for gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea or voniting. The blood from the prepuce could be due to an infection in the bladder or prepuce. Stones in the bladder could also cause blood like this. Trauma to the penis or a growth on the penis or in the bladder can also cause similar signs. I would recommend getting to your vet to have them do a physical exam and a urine evaluation to see what the source is and what needs to be done for this.
