Why pet insurance is worth it for your pet.

Thanks to new veterinary advancements, there are better diagnostics & treatments available to our pets than ever before. But they often come at a high cost. In fact, over a pet’s lifetime, families can expect to spend ~$16,600 on vet care for dogs6 and ~$13,350 on vet care for cats!8 From common infections, to chronic illnesses, to catastrophic injuries, dogs and cats can get sick or hurt unexpectedly at any life stage.
Pet insurance for injured cats and dogs.
Pet insurance for common accidents and illnesses.

So, how common are unexpected accidents and illnesses? Well, they happen more often than you think! No matter their age, pets have a habit of getting into things they shouldn’t – like snacking on toxic plants or fracturing paws while playing. It’s especially hard to imagine when your pet is young and healthy, but as many as 1 in 3 pets need emergency vet treatment each year!20

When ruh-rohs or cat-astrophes happen, Pumpkin insurance plans can give you peace of mind knowing you have help protecting your pet’s health when it matters most. They can help you say ‘yes’ to the best care possible by paying you back 90% of covered vet bills. After you’ve met your annual deductible, a Pumpkin plan can cover $1,800 of an eligible $2,000 emergency vet bill. Just imagine how much it could save you over your fur kid’s life!

Pet insurance plans covers 90% of covered vet bills.

Some top pet insurance questions we get asked all the time...

From everyday illnesses to emergency accidents, the unexpected costs of veterinary care can really add up over a pet’s life. If your dog or cat gets hurt or sick, pet insurance (AKA insurance for accidents & illnesses) can reimburse you for a large portion of any covered vet bills. This can make it easier to provide your pet with the best care possible – even when it comes at a high cost – and save thousands on medical expenses over their lifetime.

The cost of your Pumpkin Pet Insurance plan will depend on a few key factors:

Breed: Certain breeds have more health problems than others and cost a little more to insure, so this is a factor that can impact the monthly cost of your plan.

Location: Average vet care costs in your city are taken into consideration, so pet parents in cities with less costly vet care may have lower monthly premiums (and vice versa).

Age: Older pets are at a higher risk for developing certain illnesses, so you can expect to pay a higher monthly premium for an adult or senior vs. a puppy or kitten. That said, Pumpkin insurance plans will NEVER reduce or limit coverage for aging pets.

Species: Generally speaking, dogs tend to cost more to insure than cats. However, this won’t always be the case depending on the breed, age, and location of your pet.

Annual Coverage Limit: The amount your insurance plan is designed to cover in eligible vet bills each year will impact the cost of your plan. Higher annual limits usually result in higher monthly premiums, whereas lower annual limits result in lower ones.

Annual Deductible: How much you choose to pay towards covered vet bills each year before your 90% cash back kicks in can also affect the monthly cost of your plan. In general, the higher the annual deductible, the lower the monthly premium.

Most pet insurance plans, including Pumpkin plans, don’t cover “pre-existing conditions” that occur or show symptoms before coverage starts or during a waiting period. However, if a pre-existing condition is curable (e.g., UTI, paw fracture), was cured, and has been free of symptoms and treatment for 180 days, Pumpkin plans would cover it if it occurs again in the future, with the exception of knee & hind leg ligament conditions. If a knee or hind leg ligament condition occurs prior to the day after you purchase your Pumpkin plan or during the waiting period, any future ones won’t be covered.

It’s important to note that not all pet insurances will cover eligible cured pre-existing conditions that occur again in the future, so this is definitely a plus with Pumpkin insurance plans!

All that said, having an incurable pre-existing condition, or a knee or hind leg ligament condition, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t join the Pumpkin pack! You can always enroll your pet and get covered for new conditions that develop down the road. Have questions? Call us at 1‑866‑ARF‑MEOW (1‑866‑273‑6369) or email [email protected].

Some providers refer to their plans as pet health insurance, but this isn’t always the most accurate description as pet insurance plans are not the same as human health insurance. They work differently, and remember that pet insurance plans are designed to cover accidents and illnesses rather than all types of pet health care. It may seem odd, but pet insurance actually falls under property & casualty insurance.

Unlike a human health insurance HMO, your Pumpkin Pet Insurance plan’s coverage isn’t limited to a “network” of health care providers. Since you get paid back directly, your dog is free to receive treatment from any licensed veterinarian, specialist, emergency clinic or hospital you choose in the U.S. or Canada!

Pumpkin Pet Insurance plans offer some of the most extensive coverage on the market. They cover a wide variety of accidents & illnesses as well as veterinary care options & services to diagnose and treat them. Pumpkin plans also cover key things that some insurance plans exclude or charge extra monthly add-on fees for. These include dental illnesses; behavioral issues; hereditary conditions; parasite infections; prescription food & supplements;* physical therapy; alternative therapies, and in-office + virtual vet exam fees for accidents & illnesses! See a sample policy for all coverage benefits & exclusions.
Did you know 70% of cats and 80% of dogs show signs of gum disease by age 3?!11 While it seems like a no brainer, not all pet insurances cover dental illnesses. Some insurances don’t cover them at all. Others only reimburse you up to $1k per year for dental illnesses, or require an annual dental exam first. Unlike some pet insurances, Pumpkin plans cover dental illnesses (including periodontal disease AKA gum disease), along with any exams, X-rays, treatment, surgery, and prescription meds used to diagnose or treat them. Pumpkin plans also cover tooth extractions for dental injuries. Pumpkin plans do not cover annual dental cleanings and certain cosmetic or elective services. For a full list of what Pumpkin insurance plans do and don’t cover, check out a sample policy.
Pumpkin Pet Insurance plans are designed to cover the diagnostics and treatments your pet needs to get better when unexpected accidents or illnesses occur. They are not designed to cover routine wellness care that pets need to stay healthy year-round, like vaccines to help prevent infectious diseases. That said, we know insurance alone won’t solve your pet’s health & wellness needs. It’s why we worked with vets to create a unique wellness package called Preventive Essentials. Preventive Essentials isn’t insurance, but an optional benefit you can add to your Pumpkin insurance plan if you want refunds for annual wellness exam fees, important vaccines, and key parasite screening tests pets need to stay healthy and disease-free! We offer different packages based on your pet’s species and age. Click on the link that applies to your pet below.

Yes! We know pet care can be expensive – especially when you have more than one fur baby to budget for.
