how awful- it is a nightmare from both your's and the breeder's perspectives.
Breeders ask for vet checks in the first 48 hours for a reason- to be sure puppy has no GI parasites, murmurs, etc and is called healthy by a vet other than their own.
ER clinics have a place of course- they are there for emergencies. Not for regular vet care, or situations that are able to be covered in business hours so from the cost perspective, you probably should have taken the puppy to the vet you were probably going to use for his vet care since it was during business hours (most ER clinics aren't even open during the day around here). It would have been considerably less costly to do so of course. That said, you already did go to the ER- so what did they find there? That too is a piece of who is responsible for the costs incurred... if the puppy ate something on your watch and landed there, it is your pocketbook that should cover it. If the puppy had say, coccidia, that couldn't have been symptomatic so soon as to have gotten it on your watch, then the breeder should cover it.
So without the diagnosis, there's not a way to judge who should pay the bill. If you want to share the diagnosis, it'd be easier to make a call on what would be reasonable and customary to do as a breeder.

Pup did not eat anything out of the ordinary.

I didn't realize it was a weekend. What did they diagnose him with?
If they didn't diagnose, what meds did he get (because that too is telling what they are treating just in case for)?
I mentioned eating something because most GI bugs do not cause vomiting but obstructions do.

Of course not on the expensive care- we take what we have available when we need care.
I just hate a non-diagnosis...they ruled out all the usual diarrhea causes (dk on the vomit- that's pretty unusual really in puppies who haven't swallowed something). Treating for cocci prophylactically is pretty much standard of care w good breeders. We don't want it, don't want the puppies to have to endure it and don't want the families to have to live with it if it flares up under stress so most everyone I know treats either w Marquis or one of the metabolites of that drug.
Paying for vet care the breeder didn't authorize, though, I kind of doubt she'll pay the whole bill. If you had called her, on the front end, though- she surely would have told you to go to the ER and in that case probably would have paid the bill. I'll cross my fingers that you'll get at least 50% of it back.
Returning the puppy- that doesn't seem like a real option- you'd get the puppy $ back but the ER probably not.

I'd love to hear what other breeders here think on this one.
