I am a elderly kitty with IBD, too. Meowmie found some rice-like segments in my stool, (yuck!). She's waiting to hear back from the vet on if I am O.K. to de-worm (i.e.-healthy/strong enough) and if so, they'll provide the med. But instead of that she is wondering if there is anything that might be less harsh/potentially toxic? I'm very fragile now, taking a bunch of meds for IBD and even recieving SQ fluids, although I am on the mend somewhat. I just made it back up to 7#, (had dropped to 6.5#), and the last few days have been having more formed stools.
The vet tech said I probably got this from ingesting a flea (they carry it), although Meowmie hasn't seen any on me. But she will be treating me for that, too.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
