New to Forum Night-time urinary problems
Hi I new to the forum hoping to get some help from fellow dog lovers. I have a 5 year old german sheperd who has always been afraid of all sorts of things. I have had her since she was 6 weeks old and she has never been abused. My situation now that she wakes up during night and paces the first floor (my bedroom is on the first floor too) until I get up and let her out. If I don't hear her she will pee on an area rug in my living room. This has been going on for about 4 months. She does not have a bladder infection and is otherwise fine, eating, drinking and playing normally.My vet seems to think that she is waking up because something is causing her anxiety and suggests medicating her with a low dose of xanax before bed. Any ideas?
