Wellapets is a revolutionary new educational game that teaches kids to manage asthma through taking care of a fun pet that also has asthma!
“This game is a novel approach to helping children understand asthma in a fun and educational way. My patients would greatly benefit from this approach.”
-- Gregory Sawicki, MD, MPH, asthma-specialist pediatrician
YOU AND YOUR WELLAPET
An adorable Wellapet desperately needs your help managing its asthma and learning how to blow fire! But watch out - the pesky, dirty smog monster from the factory nearby is coming to bother your Wellapet! What to do??
BOOM! Superwella arrives just in time to teach your pet how to defend itself! Superwella teaches your Wellapet to blow fire through twice daily training missions, sent to your Wellapad. Complete new missions twice per day to keep your pet in tip-top health, unlock new rooms and minigames, evolve your pet’s epic fire-breathing and collect sweet items to decorate your pet’s home.
Adopt your very own Wellapet today!
OUR EDUCATIONAL VALUE
Practice proper inhaler technique - Kids walk their Wellapet through the correct steps of using an inhaler, including using a spacer and breathing at the right times.
Learn to use controller/maintenance inhalers at the right time - To keep their Wellapet healthy, kids give their pet its controller/maintenance inhaler twice per day.
Recognize and understand asthma triggers - Kids clean up asthma triggers in their Wellapet's home and avoid triggers when playing outside.
Identify and correctly act on asthma symptoms - Kids use an Asthma Action Plan to play doctor and diagnose other Wellapets with asthma.
Wellapets builds upon promising research demonstrating that health-focused games can make kids healthier and more knowledgeable of their health. Specifically, studies have shown that health-focused games can:
• Improve kids’ knowledge and self-efficacy regarding their health
• Help kids remember to take their medication at the right times
• Keep kids’ health conditions under control better
Existing research has focused on games for kids with cancer and kids with diabetes. We believe Wellapets can bring these benefits to kids with asthma.

We updated the app and now it won't get passed the first "do you have asthma" question. Select yes or no and it doesn't do anything. My son used to love this app. Now he can't play it.
