Chamomile tea to cure your dog's stye. Prepare a chamomile infusion and moisten a cotton pad with it.

Repeat this process 4 times daily, reheating the chamomile infusion each time.
Coriander seed infusion for styes on a dog. Mix a little water with coriander seeds in a pan and bring to the boil. When it's cooled slightly, apply the infusion with a cloth to the dog's stye to thoroughly wash out the infection. This process also needs to be repeated 3 or 4 times a day to get rid of your dog's stye.
Turmeric, a natural spice which has many health benefits, is also great for curing a stye on a dog. To do this, simply dissolve two tablespoons of turmeric in a cup of boiling water, then apply with gauze to the stye while it's still warm. This will help to cure the infection.
