3 year old male urinating in his sleep

I have a 3 year old neutered male gsd. A few days ago when I woke up I notice there was a large wet spot under Rocco. I cleaned the mess up and gave Rocco a bath and figured he just had a dream about being outside going to the bathroom. Well a few days later he did the same thing. I'm bring a urine sample to the vet tomorrow and then go from there. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this issue. He seems to young for incontinence and is in great health.

Sounds like a possible UTI...is he drinking excessively?

He doesn't seem to be drinking excessively at least from what i see when im home. I'm not sure if its a uti or not. Hopefully the urinalysis will be able to determine what it is.

I hope so too. Is his urine particularly dilute? Like when he goes outside?

I'm not sure if it is or not. I have a dog door on my house so he just goes whenever he needs to. Ill take a look at it tomorrow and see and let the vet know.

Well I brought Rocco to the vet today. They said his urine was fine and decided to order blood work. The results of that showed a high createne level and high blood oxygen. The vet said that he may have a kidney disease, however she was not positive. She put him on special food to see if that clears it up and he goes back in 6 weeks. Hopefully the food fixes the problem and I hope this is just a short term fix.

Hopefully it's just a glitch...btw you may want to get him a "male wrap" which can be found at Walmart or Pet(smart/co).

I'd also investigate if he could be having seizures in his sleep...tehy can be fairly mild but loss of bladder is common
