Thankfully, there isn't enough cocoa in that donut to intoxicate a dog of her size with the theobromine in cocoa (vomiting, agitation, tremors, soon after ingestion). As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but Sonya wasn't intoxicated and will remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis nor treat in any manner. (The nuts aren't of concern.) Please respond with further questions or concerns.
