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 Preventive Essentials claim was processed and reimbursed within 2 weeks of filing my claim.

I was emailed status updates during the review period. I am pleased with Pumpkin Pet Insurance.

Very impressed with our dog Boomer's Pumpkin plan.

Everything has been so smooth and informative from the start. Just filed our first claim last week for his annual wellness check-up and Pumpkin reimbursed the entire cost within 2-days. I have already recommended Pumpkin to several friends.

After owning 8 dogs without having pet insurance

we decided to get a wellness and critical care policy on our puppy Mahlee. We have not been insured long but submitted two claims for wellness puppy care, response from the Pumpkin Team was amazing! I had some issues submitting the claims, a Pumpkin Team member jumped in on chat and took care of everything. Payment arrived that day in the form of an email. I would recommend Pumpkin Pet Insurance to everyone!!!!!

I purchased Pumpkin Pet insurance for my Maltese in March, 2021

with no idea she would die in April. I had only had the pet policy for one month when my sweet little Bailey started having complications breathing. She was rushed to the vet emergency clinic, put on Lasix and sent home to see her veterinarian the next day. After her visit the next day, Bailey was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, something I have never been told before. The next day Bailey died and we were devastated. Not knowing the insurance would pay, because I had only had it for one month, I filed the claim anyway. Low and behold the insurance paid 90% of Bailey's bill after my $250 co-pay. Amazing!!! I would recommend Pumpkin Pet insurance to anyone. If I ever get another pet I will definitely purchase the pet insurance from Pumpkin.

I highly recommend Pumpkin

I shopped around and only Pumpkin gave me the best rate for my dog insurance. Whenever you call/email, an actual person responds in a timely manner and I never had an issue with their service. I highly recommend Pumpkin.

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.
