My dog has Babesia Gibsoni. I also have a rabbit. Can this disease be transmitted to rabbits?

It appears that no, it is not possible that rabbits catch it, however cats and horses can both succumb to cross-breed-contagions.

"Generally speaking, Babesia infections do not cross-species. Babesia organisms appear to have developed specific host-parasite relationships."

Maybe you could email the vet that wrote this and confirm, though.
