Jake Gyllenhaal talks about his dog’s recent … improvements.
During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the actor shared with fans that he felt a little guilty after deciding to neuter his dog this week.
“It’s been a tough week … I had to cut my dog’s eggs,” Gyllenhaal said to Jimmy Fallon.
“You yourself?” the late-night host asked before the 40-year-old joked, “I would probably have liked to. But that should be done by a professional. “
The star of Spider-Man: Far From Home went on to explain that doctors urged him to have his dog neutered for health reasons, although he preferred not to. At that point, Gyllenhaal said the vet had the idea of getting his 7-year-old dog “neutrals”, which are “testicular prostheses” for neutered puppies.
According to the website for the product, new items – manufactured in 1995 – are testicular implants made from silicone or polypropylene that allow a pet to “maintain their natural appearance and self-esteem”.
While Jake initially scoffed at the idea, he came back at the last second.
“Of course I said no. But then I thought, ‘Well what do you look like?’ “, Gyllenhaal explained while Fallon laughed. “The night before the operation, I called my doctor and said, ‘Can we get these new items?’ … Long story short, he has new items. “
Throughout the interview, he continued to joke about the experience, adding that he had chosen gorilla-sized “new items” for his German Shepherd. In the end, Fallon asked the star if his dog was okay now, to which Gyllenhaal replied, “He’s great. He’s fine. He is healthy. He is happy. He has no memory. “
