Correction: Effects of milbemycin oxime, combined with spinosad, when administered orally to microfilaremic dogs infected with adult heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis)

In the article “Effects of milbemycin oxime, combined with spinosad, when administered orally to microfilaremic dogs infected with adult heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis)” (J Am Vet Med Assoc 2018;252:1084–1089), the units reported in the “Adult heartworm counts” section of the results were incorrect. This section should read as follows:

Adult heartworm counts

Mean ± SD adult heartworm counts were 26.4 ± 8.2 adult worms (range, 14 to 37 adult worms) in the control group, 24.1 ± 6.9 adult worms (range, 13 to 34 adult worms) in the 1× group, 25.9 ± 9.1 adult worms (range, 16 to 41 adult worms) in the 3× group, and 25.5 ± 6.5 adult worms (range, 7 to 35 adult worms) in the 5× group. There was no evidence of an effect of treatment group on adult heartworm counts (P = 0.94). In addition, contrasts comparing counts for each treated group to counts for the control group revealed no differences (P ≥ 0.55).
