Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Rice like worm segments are characteristic of tapeworms in cats. And I would note that if your lad has worms, this could make him eat like a pig as he does. So, in this case, we would want to worm him. To do so, you can get tapeworm wormers over the counter at pet stores or even order it online (ie Amazon). You will want to get one with Praziquantel to treat tapeworms or could even purchase Drontal to worm against the tapeworms we see as well as any roundworms. And just to note, it would be ideal to weigh him before you buy this to just make sure you get the right size for him and a proper dose to clear these tapeworms.

All the best,

Dr. B.
