Abstract

Following a request from the European Commission, the Panel on Additives and Products or Substances used in Animal Feed (FEEDAP) was asked to deliver a scientific opinion on the safety and efficacy of the feed additive consisting of Enterococcus faecium NBIMCC 8270, Lactobacillus acidophilus NBIMCC 8242, Lactobacillus helveticus NBIMCC 8269, Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. lactis NBIMCC 8250, L. delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus NBIMCC 8244 and Streptococcus thermophilus NBIMCC 8253 (Probiotic Lactina®) when used as a zootechnical additive for cats and dogs. The Panel concluded that Probiotic Lactina® is safe for the target species at the proposed conditions of use. The Panel also concluded that Probiotic Lactina® is irritant to skin and eyes and a respiratory sensitiser, but in the absence of data, no conclusions could be reached on its skin sensitisation potential. No conclusions could be drawn on the efficacy of Probiotic Lactina® for dogs and cats based on the data available.
