You mean parasitic medication? Absolutely, there are many safe and effective deworming drugs. They include fenbendazole, milbemycin, moxidectin, piperazine, and pyrantel. You need to visit an animal doctor first though, he/she will give your dog one to three doses at first, which will kill the adult worms.

Unfortunately for rabbits, in most cases there will be no clinical symptoms of the parasite's presence, and the infected rabbit will remain disease free until the immune system fails for some reason. So you won't really know the animal has an issue until it's too late. On top of that, pinworms are challenging to treat because rabbits are coprophagic (meaning they eat their own feces). Rabbits frequently reinfect themselves during treatment by repeatedly ingesting infected feces.

Fortunately for cats, there are dewormer medicines that can treat common parasitic infections.

For turtles, it depends on the infection. For nematodes, treatment is best achieved with the oral administration of the antiparasitic drug fenbendazole. For tape worms or flukes, if the small worms are seen in the feces or diagnosed through a fecal exam, they can be successfully treated with praziquantel. For flagellated organisms, metronidazole is used.
