Any other animals in the home?When he urinates, does he hike his leg? squat? is he laying down or asleep when this happens?Are all urine spots on a horizontal surface or are they also on vertical surfaces?Have any diagnostics been done yet, such as a urinalysis?
I would. This sounds like it may be a urinary tract infection. You had him neutered early enough in life that he should not be marking either, which increases the potential for this to be a urinary tract infection. Your vet will want to collect a urine sample from him at the time of his exam, so be sure he doesn't pee before he goes into the clinic. Your vet will likely prescribe a course of antibiotics and symptoms should resolve within a few days time if this is due to infection. If uncomfortable, your vet may also recommend a short course of pain medication, as well.
