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.

Love the ease of submitting claims online and the speedy payment payout process.

Also love that they cover more than other pet insurance companies do. We have 2 other dogs on another plan and going to switch them over to Pumpkin now.

I was skeptical when reading all the benefits and that I could use any vet….

The key is you pay up front and get reimbursed. I signed up and I have a new puppy. I submitted her vet visit with her vaccines and I had the money back within 3 days. I was very pleased and will definitely keep her insurance updated with Pumpkin. Very happy.

My 6 year old Dane ended up with a bowel obstruction and had to have emergency surgery…

The process for filing a claim was very easy and the company came through wonderfully. I had switched to pumpkin from another insurance just this year for my 3 Great Danes. I found them to be affordable and have very good coverage compared to other insurances. You never want to have to use insurance, but when you do I am grateful I found Pumpkin!!

It only took 2 days while the other took 6 weeks!

Value based on pets age which is a plus. Easy to submit claim. Much quicker in receiving funds back than the other leading pet insurance company.

Love Pumpkin!

Overall, awesome experience. Submitting claims are simple and fast!

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 or $20,000 for dogs and $7,000 or $15,000 for cats.


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

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.
