Lactulose is a galactose and fructose-based synthetic sugar syrup. These sugars move through the pet's digestive tract and are never absorbed. Bacteria break down the carbohydrates, resulting in an acidic intestinal environment. Acids soften the feces by bringing water into the colon. These acids also efficiently convert ammonia in the colon to ammonium, which is then excreted in the stool.
