And there is no guarantee that any one of the techniques is best for a specific case. In addition to the effectiveness at reducing the manifestation of symptoms, there are other issues that you should consider when evaluating which regimen may work best for your dog. Some may demand much of the owner’s time, and some regimens can be very expensive and may pose potential side effects.
