What could be causing congestion in my dog’s eye and ear only on one side though?

What could be causing congestion in my dog’s eye and ear only on one side though? It came on rather suddenly and the right nostril gets plugged up with dry mucus and the eye is goooy at times but not red. This is only in the right eye and the right nostril.

Hi there.  Still going on?  I'd take him into the vet.  Believe it or not, this can indicate a problem with his teeth.  They have long roots in their teeth and they can create symptoms like you describe if there is a problem.  They also have sinuses like we do.  So, one of the sinuses can be clogged or inflamed or infected.  https://www.petmd.com/dog/conditions/respiratory/c_multi_rhinitis_and_sinusitis  Get your pup checked out in case he needs antibiotics or a tooth pulled.  Let me know how he is doing!
