Abstract: An evaluation of veterinary clinical records from Jos-South L.G.A of Plateau State, Nigeria between January 1998 and December, 2003 to determine the seasonal and age/prevalence of canine myiasis was conducted. Of the 43.734 dogs presented during the period of the investigation, 2,674(6.11%) were positive for myiasis. 2.026(75.80%) of the positive cases occurred during rainy season, while dogs of less than 6 months had the highest number of infestation 2072(77.50%). The public health significance of the infestation pattern is discussed.
