Q. My chihuahua has looks like a sty in the corner of her eye she scratches it a lot. She eats and sleeps normal.Does all her activities. What can it be?

A. This could be a foreign body stuck under the third eyelid or an inflammation of the third eyelid.

I recommend to get it checked by a vet as she could make it worst by scratching and possibly cause herself a corneal ulcer.
