DR. MEHMET OZ His adorable yellow Labrador retriever, Khaleesi, is just what the good doctor ordered!
Dr. Oz shares why his yellow Lab is a healthy addition to his happy family.
Wishing a happy National Dog Day to my #1 pup, Khaleesi!” Dr. Oz gushed of his family’s precious yellow Labrador retriever (named after the Game of Thrones character) when the pair posed together to celebrate on Aug. 26. (He even admitted the cutie, whom he calls “my beautiful one,” would be rewarded with extra treats in honor of the holiday.) It should come as no surprise why the TV doc was so eager to sing the praises of his fourlegged friend. He’s been a vocal advocate for the benefits of spending quality time with animals as a form of emotional therapy for years. “Did you know that owning a pet can decrease depression, stress and anxiety?” the doctor shares. “Happy and healthy starts at home — go pet a dog!”
