Why would my dogs eye be swollen and red?
This easy-to-spy problem is common in both cats and dogs and can be caused by an injury, an irritation or even a disease.
Regardless of the cause, your pet's eye may look roughly the same: Some or all of the structures surrounding the eye will be red and/or visibly swollen, a condition commonly known as conjunctivitis.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
