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.

Investing in Pumpkin pet insurance has been the best decision yet! The customer service representatives were always professional, friendly, and answered all my questions before I signed up. My claims are reimbursed within one business day and submitting them online has been a breeze. Highly recommended!

Used the preventative care coverage

Used the preventative care coverage, to get Daisy Mae her puppy vaccinations. Everything worked just as advertised, and our refunds came in quickly and easily to our bank account.

Pumpkin's coverage is good, and they process claims quickly...usually within a week. It's easy to file claims online.

Pumpkin is great insurance for pets because you actually get help with paying your vet bill unlike other insurers. They have very helpful customer service and it's so easy to use their website and claim service.

So far pumpkin has given me piece of mind for my precious dogs health care. Since I have exhausted my deductible it’s been great. It’s hard for pet owners like me small income from SS but I’ll give up anything for my dog. The sacrifices are a no brainer. So thanks Pumpkin for the piece of mind

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.
