The special edition of “Ultrasonography and laparoscopy: diagnostic tools in veterinary science” for Veterinary Medicine – Open Journal (VMOJ) is an effort to bring into light the importance of ultrasonography and laparoscopy as the most recently emerging diagnostic tools in investigating various aspects of veterinary science like reproduction, medicine, surgery, etc. Ultrasonography has been applied as an important non-invasive diagnostic tool in veterinary science and has been found to be very helpful even in performing differential diagnoses besides providing supplementary evidence in diagnosing different conditions. Similarly, laparoscopy is an important diagnostic tool in human medicine and has wider applications. Although, laparoscopy is commonly implemented in equines; its application in bovines and other small animals is meager. This special edition will serve as an opportunity to highlight the importance of ultrasonography and laparoscopy in veterinary science. I am delighted to invite professionals with expertise in veterinary science to submit their valuable manuscripts for this Special Edition including research articles, review articles, short communications, etc.
