Research shows that a steady dose of a pet’s unconditional love can do wonders for our health. Pet ownership has been shown to improve anxiety and depression and decrease the presence of cortisol in our blood. It’s a no-brainer to take out comprehensive insurance policies on things that are important to us, like our health or home, but we often overlook our fur babies in these important decisions. Here’s where Pumpkin Pet Care comes in.
Pumpkin’s comprehensive insurance plans tackle pet care from a holistic standpoint, providing low cost, routine health treatments for cats and dogs through the Preventive Essentials plan. For $15.95 per month, dog owners receive reimbursement for their annual wellness exam and two vaccines, plus a 12-month supply of Zoetis’ Simparica Trio® for protection against heartworm, roundworm, hookworm, ticks and fleas. The plan’s cat counterpart reimburses the cost of an annual exam and one vaccine, and includes a 12-month supply of Zoetis’ Revolution® Plus topical 6-in-1 parasite preventive for a $10.95 monthly fee. A six month supply of each treatment is delivered to your door biannually, packaged in tasty chewable form, meaning the days of fussing with your pet during medicine time are over.

Pumpkin recognizes the bravery of veterinarians, the often-overlooked essential workers of our current crisis. Pet owners can post a photo of their furry friend with a thank you note to their vet using the hashtag #ArfMeowForVets, and Pumpkin will contribute a $5 donation for each post, up to $5,000 per clinic, and $50,000 in total, to COVID-19 Veterinary Staff Relief Funds.
