Dog ingested 1 and a half cookies. Cookies are Duffs

Customer Question

Dog ingested 1 and a half cookies. Cookies are Duffs chocolate snowballs. They are homemade. Package says it's made with Cocoa no other chocolate ingredients mentioned. They are chocolate cookies with sugar on top (all chocolate not cookie dough based).
I don't know if cocoa constitues as chocolate so not sure what to do. Dog is 12lbs chihuahua. Ate about 15 minutes ago. Did not try to do anything. Poison control wanted $69 to talk to me which is more than visiting emergency vet. Please tell me if we should
go. Cookie was slightly larger than a Oreo but smaller than average cookies.
