She probably has a severe case of cherry eye, where the tear gland becomes inflamed and infected. If it is as bad as it sounds she should have the gland removed.


If it is a dark red (almost burgundy) colored goop, it is usually from excess iron. Find a dog food that has less iron and that should help the problem. A lot of dogs get this, especially small dogs and it tends to stain the hair from the inside corners of their eyes. Try to keep the area clean as much as possible to avoid the staining until the goop lessens.
