Just after his beloved wife, Beth, passed away in June 2019, Duane “Dog” Chapman stopped by the Dr. Oz show and got quite the wake-up call.
He had been recently hospitalized for chest pains, which doctors thought was likely a heart attack, but needed to take more tests to confirm and find out what happened. Dog met up with Dr. Oz, who told the famous bounty hunter that his heart was like a “ticking time bomb.”
“You’re not going to be here with the heart the way it is right now,” Oz told Dog in a clip from his show. Dog then found out he has been diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism…and is near tears in this gut-wrenching video.
About a month later, Dr. Oz had Dog gets scans again. This time, his heart looked fine, but his lungs were of much concern.
“It really alarmed me and I was fearful of this,” Oz told him, suggesting he quite smoking and eat a healthier diet.
Dog has returned to the Dr. Oz show about a year after this alarming visit with a much healthier lifestyle, all thanks to his new fiancee, Francie Frane. In a clip teasing his appearance on Monday (Nov. 9), Dog says, “Dr. Oz saved my life. Francie saved my soul and my body.”
He also revealed that he’s lost weight, is eating a healthier diet, is working out, his vision is better, and his blood pressure is down!
Guess Dr. Oz’s wake-up call really did work! Watch the preview below.
