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.

Pumpkin is very good in keeping you updated on what is going on with your claims. Their turn around is pretty good. I am happy with the coverage plans and they cover a wide variety of things including my dogs allergy medications. This is a huge help.

I am constantly at ease knowing my kitty is under such great care with Pumpkin. I had one very unforeseen emergency incident and having her insured made the situation much more bearable. I recommend every pet owner to you guys!

Worst pet insurance ever!

If I could give no stars, I would! I have paid $141 a month and each time I submit a claim, they deny it claiming pre existing conditions my dog has not ever had! Even my vet did not understand what pre existing condition they were talking about, but they will literally not pay what they are responsible for. I canceled with them and I regret the money wasted, paying for a service they refuse to provide. SHE HAS NO PRE EXISTING CONDITIONS! Oh, and they encourage you to file an appeal, but what they don’t tell you is you will file an appeal and go months without hearing anything. This company is a scam and I am convinced the positive reviews are fake.

The Pumpkin website was very user friendly to get insurance and coverage but I don't understand why you don't use .Com domain as I been keep visiting the website pumpkincare.com rather than pumpkin.care

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.
