Pumpkin, a new pet insurance agency and pet care company, announced today the launch of its new insurance and optional monthly preventive care plans for pet owners in the U.S. Launched by Zoetis, the world’s largest global animal health company, Pumpkin is now available to consumers in many states.
Zoetis launches Pumpkin, a new pet insurance and pet care company that uniquely combines preventive care with best-in-class health insurance for dogs and cats in the U.S.
With its holistically designed plans, Pumpkin addresses a gap in the pet care industry by offering competitive pet health insurance and preventive care so pet owners can help their pets stay healthy year-round. Rather than wait until animals are sick or injured to provide care, Pumpkin’s Preventive Essentials plan – available at an additional cost to the core insurance plan – helps enable families to give their pets crucial routine care that veterinarians universally recommend for cats and dogs.
Specifically, Pumpkin’s Preventive Essentials plan includes the following:
For dogs: Reimbursement for the costs of one annual wellness exam fee and two vaccines administered at such annual visit; and provides a 12-month supply of Zoetis’ Simparica Trio® (sarolaner, moxidectin, and pyrantel) for protection against heartworm disease, ticks and fleas, roundworms and hookworms for only $15.95 per month.
For cats: Reimbursement for the costs of one annual wellness exam fee and one vaccine typically administered at such annual visit; and provides a 12-month supply of Zoetis’ topical 6-in-1 parasite preventive, Revolution® Plus (selamectin and sarolaner topical solution) for a monthly fee of $10.95.
Direct shipment of these parasiticide medicines delivered to the pet’s home — a service no other insurer provides.
Automatic digital reminders to administer preventive medications and to schedule vaccines via Pumpkin’s best-in-class technology platform help pet owners ensure their cats and dogs get timely treatment.
By making each pet owner’s healthcare responsibilities as easy and seamless as possible, Pumpkin aims to significantly increase the currently low percentage of pets that are compliant with preventive medication (based on internal Zoetis data) so that cats and dogs stay healthy and out of the emergency room. With Pumpkin’s Preventive Essentials, pet owners can save as much as $240 annually on parasite protection, vaccines and wellness exams alone.2
