Q: Is it normal for a dogs eye to slightly bulge in and out when chewing on his toys?

A: Marwa,
Yes! This can be normal. Because dogs flex their facial muscles when chewing on a bone this can cause their eyes to move slightly. Please let us know if your dogs eyes seem to be painful otherwise it’s normal!
