What sort of worms?  Was it tapeworm segments, or actual long worms?

White looking like a grain of rice is a tapeworm segment which is packed with eggs ,very very common Oramec does not kill tapeworms ,so if you want to clean out then you need a white wormer ( bendazole ) normally tapeworms are not considered a problem BUT can be .
