Why does my dog moan making a high pitch sound

I have a 3 year old male Shizt zu. When I first got him, he was so lovable and cuddly. For about a week he has been so cranky. He makes this high pitch moaning sound and it's working my nerves. I let him out, thinking he needs to go. He pee a little but does alot of sniffing. He wakes up in the middle of the night moaning. Do I need to take him to the vet or what?

  • Maybe a noise is bothering him or maybe he might be in pain.

  • Get him checked, he may have a bladder infection. Peeing a little and often is usually a symptom, I used to breed Pekes so....

  • I don't have a dog but my cat was waking me up in the night crying and he was really grumpy to everyone. when I took him to the vet he had a bladder infection and couldn't hardly pee. Having a litter box and going out side i didn't notice him not peeing. I think that might be your dog's problem. I would get him checked.
