    I have a 2 lb male chihuahua and he is 11 yrs old . Every once in awhile he rubs his eyes on my pants or if we are outside ,he will rub his eyes on the grass. Also he doesn’t act like what I have read about chihuahua personalitys. Ever since he was a puppy he was crabby . He loves to be held but he doesn’t like to be pet. He doesn’t give kisses and he never has . Frankly I am a little confused.

    try a preservative free eye gel lubricant too, they seem to last longer and make sure you apply it right before bed or naps always. ask a pharmacist, they should be able to give you direction with the best one to try.
