Q. My dog was outside. Then her right eye got swollen. Could it be an insect bite?

A. It sound like it could or maybe an allergic reaction to a plant or pesticide in the yard if he might have gotten into anything like that. You should look at taking him to a vet and have him evaluated to be sure that it's not something more serious and get some meds for him.
