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.

I'm new to Pumpkin

I'm new to Pumpkin. My dog, Floyd, became insured as of 7/13/204. When I was trying to make up my mind who would be my dog's insurer and also which plan was best for my dog, I was greeted warmly by a representative named Sarah. Sarah explained the various options. In addition, she offered a follow up call by a mutually agreeable date to help in case I should decide to use Pumpkin. I was called on the day we agreed upon and quite frankly I was pleasantly surprised that she called. Because of her caring, I decided to use Pumpkin as my dog's insurer. Thank you Sarah!

Easy claim process

Easy claim process, and a fair outcome with no back and forth.

Monthly Cost

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

Coverage

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.

Deductible

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).

Exclusions

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.
