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.

my dog had a traumatic accident and Pumpkin handled my claim and took the worry out of my mind if it would be covered or not. If it’s an accident it’s covered. Unfortunately my dog passed away. They followed through and canceled the policy without me having to worry about it during a very difficult time. I’m glad I picked them and I would definitely use them in the future. Thanks Pumpkin

Get pumpkin for your puppy !

Pumpkin is an amazing company -it’s easy to file claims, they have a warm and friendly staff and quick responses each time I’ve needed help. I have a lab puppy who causes herself harm which causes me stress so having helpful vets and excellent insurance is a godsend. Can’t recommend them highly enough.

Great experience

I have only had great experiences using Pumpkin. All claims are processed quickly and there is plenty of communication. I’m glad I went with Pumpkin for my mini goldendoodle!

Excellent customer service and paid…

Excellent customer service and paid claims very prompt.

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.
