Food: Whispering Pines has five house foods always available to offer your dog: Iams, Eukanuba, Diamond, Canidae, and Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach. You are welcome and encouraged to bring your dog's personal food. If this is your preference, then please remember that we require all incoming food to be in an air tight container such as a Tupperware type or a dog food tin or tote – as long as it is hard-sided and has a lid. We have canned food and Iams biscuits available, although we welcome any specific canned food or treats that you would like to bring for your pet. Whispering Pines Pet Resort feeds twice a day, generally around 7:30am and 5:00pm. Our staff is able to adjust to your dog's feeding schedule as requested, from one to three times a day. We accept raw diets, but we do ask that each meal is individually packaged for convenience. We have a refrigerator, freezer and microwave to help cater to your pet's meals. Multiple family pets are separated briefly during feeding times so that our staff can assure that each dog is getting the proper amount of food and medications.
Medications: Our professional staff can address most medication needs. Whispering Pines Pet Resort requires that all incoming medication arrives in the original container that it was dispensed in. This also includes vitamins, supplements, ointments and all over the counter items. No baggies or pill containers are allowed. Our staff will carefully go over all medications with you when you check in. We do not charge extra for administering medications except for insulin shots, which is $5.00 per shot for both diabetic cats and dogs.
Beds: Whispering Pines Pet Resort offers a wide variety of bedding for our guests. We have cots, platforms, rubber mats, cudlers and lots of soft blankets available to keep you pets warm and cozy. While we are happy to supply your pet with bedding, you are also more than welcome to bring bedding from home. We only require that all bedding be able to be machine washed and that the entire bed be able to fit in our washing machine. We launder beds daily as many of the dogs like to bring the outdoors back in with them! Whispering Pines Pet Resort is not responsible for any damaged bedding.

Our customers are welcome to bring approved toys from home, although we do not allow tennis balls or any item smaller than a tennis ball.
