How To Use Crystals To Heal Your Dog

If your pet has struggled with chronic health conditions, it may be the perfect time to try healing crystals. Crystals carry a unique vibration that can help connect us to the earth. When used for healing, crystals can help us recalibrate and realign our energy.

How To Use Crystals To Heal Your Dog

We were first introduced to crystals during a reiki session for my dog. While I watched the crystal swing in a circle above my dog’s spine, I asked the clinician what was happening.

She told me that when the crystal swung in one direction, it was pulling negative energy out of my dog’s body. When the crystal changed directions, it was drawing positive energy into the body.

I have to admit, it all seemed a bit woo-woo. But I was open to try anything that could help my dog heal.

I never saw much of a change in my dog’s health after that first session. But I wasn’t going to give up on the idea of using crystals to help recalibrate his energy.

How do crystals work

Crystals emit vibrations at a constant frequency. When crystals encounter a lower frequency, they can raise the energy to match its level. The change in energy promotes healing through uplifting energy.

What are crystals used for

Crystals are used for physical healing and setting positive intentions.

Set the positive intention for your pet’s healing.

Place the stone next to your dog or rub the stone gently over your pet’s skin. The crystal emits positive energy to help realign your pet’s energy to a higher level.

Recharge your crystals

Crystals need cleansing before first use, and recharging every 1-2 weeks thereafter.

To cleanse and recharge your crystal, set in the sunshine or moonlight for at least 4 hours. Light helps recharge crystals and maintain their vibrational frequency.

What type of crystals should you use

There are many crystals to choose from. An internet search will help you find a crystal that will work best for your situation. But it may be better to see which crystal you're drawn to.

Remember that crystals work in vibrations, and they can be calling you to them. If you’re drawn to a particular crystal, give it a chance and see what changes come to your life.

If you aren’t sure which crystal to start with, here are few suggestions:

Rose Quartz

This crystal has a glowing pink hue that communicates love and self-care. It can help boost circulation and promote heart health.

Clear Quartz

This clear crystal doesn’t hold the radiant colors like the other crystals but don’t overlook it. Clear quartz can help to stimulate the immune system and clear toxins. It can also protect against negative energy from coming into your home.


The deep violet hue of this crystal is both radiant and soothing. It can help to boost the immune system, clear the mind, and promote restful sleep.

Our Experience

Whenever my dog, Phoenix, wakes up with a coughing episode, I’ll gently rub clear quartz over his torso. The crystal helps to calm him and change his energy. Coughing spells only last 30 seconds with the use of crystals. If no crystals are used, my dog’s coughing episodes could last 10 minutes or longer.

Sometimes I rub a crystal over my dog’s torso before bed. This helps with removing negative energy, creating calmness, and promoting sleep.

There’s no denying the powerful energy that crystals contain. Crystals can help people and pets create balance, boost immunity, and promote healing. Whether you’re treating your dog’s health issues or need some calming energy, pick up a crystal and give it a try.
