The aggressive six-year-old American Eskimo dog recently underwent a highly controversial dental treatment known as canine disarming to trim and smooth his teeth.
Cotton's owner Diane Krieger had tried just about everything -- puppy training classes, self-help books, and even assistance from "Dog Whisperer" Cesar Millan -- to tame her pup's dangerous bad habit, but the biting persisted.

Vomiting ,Facial swelling, Fever or lethargy, Circulatory shock, Loss of consciousness, Death
Days, weeks or months after the shot:
