You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Two bites of salt dough craft isn't enough to cause salt poisoning in a 50 lb dog. Angus may have become thirsty and drank more water than usual but he wasn't intoxicated. There's nothing else of concern in the ingredient list for salt dough.
