On page 438, the stated doses for xylazine were given as: 0.05 mg/kg (0.01 ml/10 kg) xylazine (2 per cent solution) should be administered intravenously or 0.025 mg/kg (0.02 ml/10 kg) intramuscularly.

This should read: 0.0125 mg/kg (0.005 ml/10 kg) xylazine (2 per cent solution) should be administered slowly intravenously or 0.025 mg/kg (0.01 ml/10 kg) intramuscularly.

The error is regretted.
