Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Aimless wandering can indicate anxiety, pain, or, most worrisome, encephalopathy (brain disorder) involving the forebrain - cerebrum and thalamus. Do you think Bobby's mentation (mental status) is altered? Is he responsive to you?
Is the ingestion of a prescription drug likely? Was he treated with a drug or flea product?
