JorVet J-325 Sudan III Fecal Stain Indications

For microscopic examination of feces in order to estimate the completeness of digestion and/or absorption. Examination is made for fat droplets (neutral lipid).

Directions For Use

A fecal specimen from a normal dog should be used as a control comparison. Pancreatic exocrine insufficiency yields large amounts of neutral undigested lipid in the feces. In malabsorption syndrome there is normal digestion but inadequate absorption.

1. Add a few drops of Sudan III to a thin film of fresh feces on a glass slide. Neutral fat will stain orange in large goblets.

2. In a case of suspected malabsorption, the sample is first acidified with two drops of vinegar (acetic acid), then gently heated with a cigarette lighter. Unabsorbed fat will now stain strongly orange with Sudan III. Malabsorption syndrome is suspected when the fecal sample is first negative for staining on fresh feces but positive staining after using acetic acid and heating of the fecal sample.

Storage

Keep bottle covered. Store at room temperature.
