After having the animal for 3 years, unless you have introduced a new animal or handled a sick animal then yours without washing your hands, it is doubtful that the animal has IBD. Pythons seem to be the quickest animal to show symtoms and die from this one. I have heard that some animals survive and become carriers (I think more common among boas). I think there is a live animal test not available but from what I remember the accuracy was low. I think some types of parasites can cause nerve problems in reptiles but not the expert in sick animals.
