Pumpkin is a pet care company on a mission to make the best pet care possible fur all. Pumpkin was started after its founders took a look at other pet insurance options on the market and found that some were missing one crucial component - preventative care. Pumpkin believes all parents should be able to give their pets medical care if they’re sick or hurt, and preventive care that keeps them healthy throughout their lives.

SCAM!!!! THIS COMPANY WILL NOT COVER MANY CONDITIONS THAT ITS CONTRACT STATES IT WILL!!!! They call it “proprietary information.” Their private list they say allows them not not cover IVVD, wobblers and other conditions. No where in your contract does it say this. A represantive openly admitted to me over the phone they are misleading customers! I’m out over $1000 for bogus coverage and they refused to give me any money back at all for my premiums paid even though they NEVER spent a penny on my dog ever!!! Now they won’t do anything and just stole my money! I’ve reported to BBB and waiting on a response! DO NOT get this insurance. If your dog gets one of their many “unlisted exclusions” you will be out the money potentially thousands of you buy it on a younger dog!!! BEWARE!

I inherited three dogs in December 2020 and February 2021: German Shepherds 7, 6 and 1 year old. I placed in insurance in the first 2 but I placed the wrong name in the 6 years old. I called Pumpkin to ask to change the name of the dog as she needed more the insurance than the one year old. However, they asked me to cancel the insurance in the 1 year old and place a new one in the 6 years old. She got an infection on her gums later and I took her to the vet and they did extractions in May. Now they will not honor the claim because they said that it was a pre -existing condition. I do not understand why the insurance did not allow me to rectify the name of the dog, and I realize this in a couple of weeks.

I purchased Pumpkin Pet insurance for my Maltese in March, 2021

with no idea she would die in April. I had only had the pet policy for one month when my sweet little Bailey started having complications breathing. She was rushed to the vet emergency clinic, put on Lasix and sent home to see her veterinarian the next day. After her visit the next day, Bailey was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, something I have never been told before. The next day Bailey died and we were devastated. Not knowing the insurance would pay, because I had only had it for one month, I filed the claim anyway. Low and behold the insurance paid 90% of Bailey's bill after my $250 co-pay. Amazing!!! I would recommend Pumpkin Pet insurance to anyone. If I ever get another pet I will definitely purchase the pet insurance from Pumpkin.

we decided to get a wellness and critical care policy on our puppy Mahlee. We have not been insured long but submitted two claims for wellness puppy care, response from the Pumpkin Team was amazing! I had some issues submitting the claims, a Pumpkin Team member jumped in on chat and took care of everything. Payment arrived that day in the form of an email. I would recommend Pumpkin Pet Insurance to everyone!!!!!
