I am sorry to hear Bailey ate the muffin.

Chocolate can be very toxic, however it must be addressed quickly. At this point, the chocolate is likely had its effect and no further treatment is needed. I suspect she did not get a toxic dose. Her not feeling well could be due to upset stomach from the muffin (high fat is bad for dogs) or it could be completely unrelated. I recommend offering her a bland diet of boiled chicken and white rice. If she is not interested in eating at all this morning, I would have her checked out to ensure there is nothing else going on besides a little bit of upset stomach.
