Hello, my name is***** and I am happy to help. Is it one eye or both? Is it the eyelid itself or the eyeball?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
One eye and it's not his eye lid it's below his like his cheek I guess
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It's not really bothering him cause he's outside
Expert:  Christi Belew replied 2 months ago.

If it is actually his cheek below the eye, there are a few reasons for that.

1. Bug bite- you can give Benadryl 1 mg per 1 pound by mout every 12 hours. Given his age and being outside, this would seem the most likely!

2. Tooth root abscess- the big upper pre-molars can get infected (pretty uncommon in a 1 year old dog, though)

If it does not resolve this weekend with Benadryl or continues to worsen, then I'd recommend a visit with a local veterinarian.
