My dog gets something like that ....if u lift the eye lid is it red inside ? My vet isn't sure why this keeps happening to my dog...but its some kinda bacteria infection...either from my other dog cleaning her eyes or from the eye lashes growing funny..Either way the only thing that clears it up is a steriod eye drop...and clears it up very fast within a day or 2...
My vet also tells me its very painful cause the inside of the eye lid was so red..So I keep the drops here at all times and catch it b4 it gets to bad

From what I have read you treat dog styes just like human styes with a warm compress in the early stages. Once the infection sets in then you will need antibiotics to treat it.
I know humans can get more than one stye at a time. I have had 3 on one eye at one time. So it makes sense dogs can get them too

Good luck Sherri! I did think it looked like a stye, there are antibacterial creams you can get at the pharmacy for them, ask the pharmacist.

If the warm compresses don't help, I probably would advise taking him to the vet. If those are little bacterial infections, you want to get rid of them. Even if they aren't doing much harm around the eye, if left for a long while, the bacteria could manage to travel to other parts of the body, and that could be bad news.

Personally, if this was my dog, and his eye was that red all over, he'd be at the vet. Sorry, but all the advice in the world is not gonna help if this 'explodes' over the next few days. Look at his other eye. Not nearly as red. His bad eye is hairless and that means that the hair is gone from itching, or rubbing it. Maybe you don't see him do it, but all the hair is gone. Yes it looks like a stye, but who knows for sure
