This answer is coming a little late to you, my apologies.
I cannot explain this strange behavior without seeing it but I do urge you to seek your vets advie asap. Parvovirus is a serious disease and even dog's that are responding well can all of a sudden take a turn for the worse. I rarely treat PV with SQ fluids and instead are more aggressive and hospitalize the puppy and maintain thier hydraton with intravenous fluids.

Thank you for your response.. Inpt hospitalization would have been optimal however due to financial concerns and the fact I'm a nurse, the doctor felt comfortable with tx at home .. The pup is doing ok now however she now has a wound that required tx this am at the vet. Thanks again !!
