Peeing at night

I have a 4.5mo old GSD male. At night he has usually been waking us up twice to go out. The last 3 nights he has been waking us every 2 hours almost on the hour. I'm exhausted. His water is picked up at least 3-4 hours before bedtime. He's not doing this during the day. Any thoughts???

He might have an infection. You can all your vet and get instructions on how to capture a urine sample, or bring him in to have a sterile sample drawn. It's a common thing in puppies, my male had the same thing when he was that age.

Try using a kitchen ladle to get a urine sample. That is alot of peeing. If it is a UTI it can be easily cleared with meds.

Peeing at night

What is strange is that he doesn't do this in the daytime.

Well, I am probably anthropomorphizing here, but maybe during the day there are more things going on to distract him from the discomfort in his bladder. But at night, the symptoms may be harder for him to ignore. It could be a mild infection. Or it could be something else entirely, but getting him cleared medically will let you know for sure.

Also agreeing, go see your vet. He shouldn't need to pee that much at night.
