Hi, I'm a licensed veterinarian and I'll be happy to help.

Certainly I'm not surprised to hear that there's some digestive upset after eating a pound of cookie dough. The bigger concerns come from the dehydration that may result from all of the vomiting and possibly diarrhea, AND from the possibility of chocolate toxicity, as dogs have difficulty with handling chocolate.

I suspect that a veterinary examination may be needed today, to assess Sasha's level of dehydration and provide fluid therapy if needed, along with other supportive care such as anti nausea medicines.

If veterinary care is not available, then you could try a dose of pepto-bismol liquid at home (one half teaspoon), repeated every 12 hours. This is a treatment for mild digestive irritation and it may help Sasha feel a little better.

If the pepto does not help, or if Sasha vomits it back up, then you'll need to find an emergency vet that is available today.

If the pepto helps, then in 3-4 hours you could start to provide fluids orally such as chicken broth or pedialyte. Then, a few hours later, bland food such as white rice.
