Due to the wandering nature of dogs in ouv environment especially among stray dogs, they are highly susceptible to a variety of parasitic infections. Close contact between human and infected dogs is a major cause of zoonotic diseases, especially in urban and semi-urban areas. Prevalence of zoonotic helminth infection in human is linked with the prevalence of the diseases in the animals within the area. In Nigeria, little attention is given to human toxocariasis. Therefore, the aim of this study was to provide information on the prevalence of parasites in stray dogs in the selected local government area of Edo state, Nigeria.
