IBD is one of those things where the treatment can ultimately be as difficult as the problem itself (because all of those things have long term side effects in a big way).
I've seen really good luck with TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) -- acupuncture, and some of the herbs are incredibly helpful (far stronger than anything we typically use here). IBD can actually be 'fed' (i.e., "encouraged";) by something called "leaky gut syndrome" -- that's' not a term you'll hear at a regular vet but it's honestly not all that difficult to rectify.
http://www.tcvm.com - there's a locator on the left. Honestly she doesn't really want just the "closest one" -- she wants someone comfortable with working with IBD.
Other holistic modalities can be helpful as well -- homeopathy for sure, homotoxicology for sure. Email me if you need more description - just listing isn't going to help you if it's something she won't consider.
