Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

While in no way toxic - the fat content and type of ingredients can cause stomach upset (and rarely pancreatitis).

My chihuahua is not himself. He ate a small bite of chiken from chicken salad, and he has his tail between his legs, licking lips and swallowing, but no emesis or bm, almost seems confused, right now sitting in my lap and staring, didn't respond when I asked if he wanted to go out which is very unusual. I don't know what else he could have eaten.

The signs you report, including lick of the lips is consistent with nausea (stomach upset) - which would not be uncommon from eating mayo.
