In Traditional chinese medicine the eyes are related to the liver.
Left side is related to the immune system. Your pup has likely had a series of vaccines and this is the immune system showing it is stressed from the assault. Did she just have a rabies recently? Did she have with any other vaccines?
Also - lighter note, there could be a speck of debris, the body sends in the forces to deal with the invader. Mucous forms in an attempt to protect the body. As long as it isn't enflamed, then you can make saline solution of 1/4 tsp of "sea" salt in a cup of hot water (to dissolve), bring to room temp and dip a soft cloth in and cleanse the eye. You can also use "eyebright" tea and/or goldenseal tea (antibacterial) and is safe for the eye.
Also (and I have done this on me and my dog - based on Dr. Pitcairn's DVM suggestion - google it), pierce a cod liver oil capsule and put few drops in the eye - hold lid closed and allow to blink...will likely fuss from this and paw as feels weird...but my dog's eye wouldn't stop gooping (for a few weeks, was not bothered by, just kept getting clump pooling on lower lid) and then started tearing...I was using anti-bacterial drops and nothing....did the cod liver oil once - no more problem.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
