Slide Dermatology The Dermatology Service at UVHvets is available to help those pets that experience skin disease. We know how frustrating skin conditions can be for the quality of life of your pet as well as your relationship with them. As a board-certified veterinary dermatologist, Dr. Michelle Woodward works to determine the underlying cause of different conditions, like ear and skin infections, so that they stop recurring. She has advanced training and certification in all aspects of skin disease, including:
  • Hair loss
  • Itchy skin (licking, chewing, scratching)
  • Rashes/crusts/pustules
  • Skin infections (including resistant Staphylococcus (MRSP) and yeast)
  • Ear infections
  • Bumps/nodules/masses
  • Draining tracts
  • Nail disease
  • Hormonal diseases (Cushing’s disease, hypothyroidism)
  • Immune-mediated skin diseases like lupus and pemphigus
As many skin diseases are chronic and potentially life-long, Dr. Woodward and her dedicated staff will work with you and your veterinarian to determine the best treatment plan for your pet. Some of the Dermatologic Services offered at UVH with Dr. Woodward include:
  • Intradermal allergy testing
  • Serum (blood) allergy testing
  • Video otoscopy
  • Bacterial culture and susceptibility testing
