If crystals have healing powers, then this would mean it does for our dogs and pets as well, right? While there is not any scientific evidence on the subject, there is some case evidence, which is interesting. As a good rock hound would say, “Let’s go dig!” and discover how your too.
Let’s explore a case study. This one hits close to home.
*Updated: August 30, 2023
Budget Tip: You will be shocked at the price of a small healing crystal. I certainly was the first time Henry picked out his prized stone. I think his first crystal was $.25. Yep, a quarter. Heck, you can find that hidden in your couch. I don't think I've paid over $1.25 for any of Henry's stones. So, while all his healing crystals are pretty and the process is fun, it doesn't break the bank either. This is a fun activity and if it helps Henry or me in any way then it's a bonus.
A little crystal shop
One day Henry, my dog, and I were on a walk and found a little crystal shop.
Henry was intrigued. So was I. The shop owner, Jeanette, invited us to explore.
Inside the front door was a huge turnstile loaded with various healing crystals. We slowly walked around it. Henry began bouncing like a bean, trying to see each one. I picked him up. He’d lean over trying to see certain crystals. I pick up each crystal of interest and let him inspect each . We did this all the way around until he found one he seemed to like. It was Dalmatian Jasper. The one he liked was red with black spots. He was content as if his mission was accomplished. Jeannette handed me a piece of paper. It had the “ healing stone meaning” of Dalmatian Jasper. One of the first ones listed was protection from nightmares.
Interestingly, I had recently adopted Henry. I would daily wake him up crying with what appeared like a nightmare. Since we acquired this Dalmatian Jasper gem, he rarely has a nightmare. Interesting, huh? Keep in mind that there is no placebo effect with dogs. Although there could be a caregiver placebo effect, it’s highly unlikely with nightmares.
Healing crystals for dogs continues…
Henry and I have visited Jeanette’s shop many times. Each time, I let Henry pick out his healing crystals. Jeanette always provides a paper with the “crystal meaning” or attributes of the healing stone. Surprisingly every time it relates to something significant either he or I am experiencing. What does this mean? Maybe nothing? Or perhaps Henry’s picking up on the crystals’ vibrational frequency?

Some healing crystals
Some of the healing crystals Henry’s picked:
Blue Lace Agate (The Peacemaker) – gives confidence and improves communications
Goldstone – reduces stomach tensions
Peacock Copper – relieves stress and enables happiness
Hematite or Black Diamond – boosts self-esteem
Moss Agate (2) – improves strength and energy
Green Calcite – heals bones, ligaments, and arthritis
Green Quartz – improves communications
Dalmatian Jasper – protection from nightmares, depression, and negativity
Note: This isn’t an exhaustive list of these crystal healing attributes.
These crystals were all selected when Henry was newly adopted or taking classes.
Do the crystals work?
Since there is no placebo effect in pets or animals, Henry’s results are even more interesting. Henry selecting crystals so precisely is amazing to me. Surprisingly, I have noticed a marked improvement with each crystal. Perhaps I was more focused on the attributes. But all the same, it is interesting.
Combining healing crystals and meditation
I feel like I’m a lot more grounded and my meditations are more effective when I meditate when Henry and healing crystals. Henry certainly does like his gemstones. However, when he’s done with them, he’s done. It’s as if he’s received what it has to offer and he’s ready for a new healing crystal.
TIP: While Henry only looks or sniffs the crystals, be careful with your dog and small stones. I also only allow him to inspect his gems when I’m with him. They could be a choking hazard.
Another way to use healing crystals for dogs
People have found it useful to place a crystal (with the appropriate healing stone meaning) in their dog’s bed. I would recommend either sewing it into the bed or attaching it in a permanent way to avoid choking.
I’ve even used a to massage Henry. It’s a sort of but also saves on my hands. However, you could use any kind of larger as a , depending on your dog’s size. Of course, you can also select a for your dog’s needs. Such as one that would help with , , , or whatever your dog’s or issues are of concern.
Can my dog pick healing crystals?
Yes. While I think Henry’s great, he’s not the only one.
If you have crystals, hold them out to your dog individually and see which one(s) receive a positive reaction. You may be surprised. It’s a fun activity and one that can benefit both your dog and you.

Summary of how a dog is an expert in the meaning of healing crystals
Henry has responded to crystals just as the attributes indicated. For him, it seems each has a unique . Why I’m not entirely sure. They seem to help him. Plus, there is no side effect, like a traditional medication. Of course, if you or your dog are sick, always seek medical attention. This is a fun activity to do with your dog.
