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.

They were very helpful over the phone

They were very helpful over the phone. But when I try doing it online I just get lost and takes me awhile to figure it out. Once it's done then it goes smoothly. It's probably just me but I will keep trying. Not sure of the dates idid them.

Why I Chose Pumpkin

I did a lot of research, and chose Pumpkin for my pet insurance needs. I was able to customize my plan, and I like that 90% of service fees are paid for a covered claim. I also like the preventive coverage, which has already proven to be helpful. I do wish they had an app, but it is easy enough to just take a picture of the invoice and upload. Payment is very quick. I am very happy with my Pumpkin experience thus far.

I've had a great experience with Pumpkin

I've had a great experience with Pumpkin, as well as the Peace of Mind that my Miip is protected. Her yearly labs are covered so I'm up to date on the things I need to know. I lost my 15 year old because of things I did not know.

Monthly Cost

Plans start as low as $30 per month. Prices vary based on plan type, pet breed, age, and location.


Every pet is covered by a 90% reimbursement rate to make it easier to say “yes” to the best possible care.

Payout Limits

Annual limits of $10,000, $20,000 or unlimited for dogs and $7,000, $15,000 or unlimited for cats.


3 options: $100, $250, $500 and $1000

Age Limits

No upper age limits. Pets must be at least 8 weeks old to enroll.

Waiting Period

Insurance coverage begins 14 days after your policy begins for all conditions, including knee/ligament issues where some other policies make you wait 6 months for coverage. No waiting periods for preventive care (in fact, depending on when you received the care, you may be eligible for a retroactive refund).


Pre-existing conditions are not covered. However, unlike some other pet insurances, Pumpkin’s plan covers some curable pre-existing conditions if symptom-free for 180 days, with the exception of knee and ligament conditions. For full terms, visit pumpkin.care/insurancepolicy.
