They develop lab medicaments ("drugs") that conceal a specific symptom, mask it, cloak it, alleviate it, disguise it, palliate it. So that's called palliation.
Once you stop using the drug, the original symptom returns.
They also developed even more powerful drugs, drugs that can stifle the symptom, quash it, quell it, overcome it, subdue it, suppress it. So that's called suppression.
Once you stop using the drug, the original symptom does not return. Possibly never.
By far these are the two biggest groups of drugs in allopathic medicine, both by count and by number of prescriptions: More than 99% of all drugs do nothing but palliate or suppress your reported symptom!
And that's what they mean to do.
Ironically, in drug development precision is imposing: Allopathic medicine develops drugs so precise they can for example inhibit the organism's production of a specific protein.
Allopathic medicine excels in identifying the drug that successfully palliates or suppresses your symptom, or your dog's symptom. Because then you reward them with: CASH.
They tell you, and you believe: "when the symptom is gone, so is the sickness"
Well no, you aren't cured, your dog isn't cured: The cause of the defect, disease, or disorder is still there, the body is still sick.
And so, not before long the body will signal its sickness by resurfacing the symptom (if it got palliated) or showing a new, another symptom, elsewhere (if it got suppressed).
Your allopathic vet or MD will treat that new symptom as unrelated, as new ailment, with a new drug. And the resurfaced symptom with another round of treatment, or sustained treatment, or a more powerful drug.
Either way, again they make you happy: they successfully remove your symptom or your dog's symptom.
