The Basics of Crystal Healing for Animals and Pets
Crystals Can Help Heal Sick Animals and Protect Them From Illness
How Can Crystals Work for Pets?
The use of crystal healing dates back as far as 25,000 B.C. Healing with crystals was the primary form of medical treatment for American Indians, Aborigines, and Bushmen.
Primarily, crystals have been used to heal and protect humans, but the healing properties that crystals possess are just as beneficial to animals and pets.
Healing crystals have unique properties that can help animals of all shapes and sizes recover from and prevent illness. From placing crystals around your pet's bed to creating collars for them that contain healing crystals, there are many different ways in which people use crystals and stones to protect and heal their pets.
These powerful crystals and stones can help heal and protect animals from physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual illnesses, including but not limited to:
- Respiratory, circulatory, and digestive conditions
- Hyper-activity, stress, anxiety and suffering
- Inflammation, joint pain and arthritis
- Hormonal and compulsive behavioral issues
The healing process of using crystals on your pets is no different than the healing process of crystals on humans. All crystals intended for healing must be cleansed, programmed, and energized before use.
Crystal healing is a wonderful, natural method for aiding your pet towards wellness and recovery and is great to use in conjunction with other methods of treatment. If your pet is showing signs of illness, please consult a veterinarian for medical advice before proceeding and supplementing treatment with crystal therapy. Be sure to research which types of crystals you are using to minimize the risk of toxicity exposure due to certain natural minerals contained in various crystal substances.
Is Your Pet Sick? Use Crystals to Help Heal Them
How to Use Crystals to Help Heal Your Pets
Crystal healing for animals is no different than crystal healing for people. Although the process is the same, it is important to look for any signs that your pet is in distress while trying to heal them.
Signs to watch for include: excessive or unusual wagging of the tail, stamping of their feet, clenching or grinding of the teeth, attempts to get away, as well as signs of discomfort like when their ears go back or when their hair becomes raised.
If your pet shows any of these signs, slow down the healing process or stop it altogether as this may be a sign that the healing has become too intense.
When an animal is enjoying the healing process, they may show it through actions such as drooling, laying down, rolling on their stomach, or sighing/purring.
Just like the intuitive based healing process of crystal work on humans, the process is also intuitive for animals. Trust yourself and trust your pet to know when to continue and when to stop.
Amber is a Protector of Animals
Do you have a pet that is getting old, becoming more sluggish, or lacks energy? If so, the use of amber can be helpful to revitalize, strengthen and protect them.
Amber is a beautiful stone used for centuries to ward off illness in humans and has been used in recent years on pets.
To use the healing properties of amber on your pet, you must first prepare an amber vibrational elixir. You can do this by placing a charged and energized amber stone in a bowl of water. Allow the amber to rest in the water for about a day. Remove the stone from the water and allow your pet to drink the water from the bowl.
The healing properties of the amber will have been released into the water, protecting your pet from illness, both physical and mental.
Crystal Healing for Pets Who are Depressed
Whether or not you agree with the research, it has been proven that animals have emotions - especially our pets.
From time to time, almost all of us, if not all of us, go through periods of sadness and depression. This also goes for our pets.
Odds are, if you have experienced depression that you know how miserable it can make you feel. This is why it is important to ensure that our pets don't go through this either.
Signs and symptoms that your pet may be depressed include unusual lethargy, a change in eating habits, and isolation.
A few circumstances that can cause depression in pets include the death of a loved one, a history of abuse, and separation from their siblings.
Luckily, healing crystals can be used to prevent and treat animals suffering from depression. The particular crystal associated with healing depression in animals is known as lithium quartz.
Lithium Quartz is very useful as a natural antidepressant for animals in the same way it is for people.
To use this crystal to heal your pet, place the stone somewhere that your pet spends a good portion of their day. A few suggestions include near their bed, under a pillow they lay down on, or on a piece of furniture they particularly like.

How to Heal a Pet's Broken Heart
Sometimes, a broken heart can hurt just as badly as a broken bone. Just like humans, animals are vulnerable to emotional scars that can cause sadness, grief and suffering.
To prevent and heal a pet suffering from a broken heart use the healing powers of aventurine.
This strong crystal has long been used to promote love and positive feelings in humans, and also works on animals.
When a pet has just been rescued from a shelter or loses one of his siblings, he can become scared, sad and timid. Using aventurine can lift their mood and fill their heart with love instead of pain.
To use the healing powers of aventurine on your pet, simply place the crystal where your pet sleeps. Over time, the energy from the crystal will improve your pets mental state.
Crystal Healing for Hyperactive Pets
Do you have a pet that is extremely hyperactive? Maybe you just adopted a puppy or a kitten, and as cute as they may be, they just won't ever stop running around the house at all hours of the day and night.
If this sounds like you, dalmatian jasper may be just what the doctor ordered!
This powerful healing stone is known to have a calming effect on animals. Not only will it relax your pet, it will also promote a balanced emotional state, help your pet remain composed and encourage them to sleep peacefully through the night.

Crystals to Help You Communicate with Your Pet
First off, this is not a crystal that will turn you into Doctor Doolittle. This is a healing crystal that will help you to better understand what your pet is feeling and/or thinking.
Mookaite, also known as mook jasper, has long been used to help improve communication between humans and animals.
To use mook jasper on your pets, simply wear it or carry it in your pocket whenever you are near your pets, especially when you are playing with them.
If your pet is having trouble in the yard or litter box, Leopard Skin Jasper could be the help they need. This crystal is very helpful for digestion issues and can also alleviate abdominal pain. Try taping this crystal under your cat’s window seat or make an elixir for your dog to drink. To make a crystal elixir, place a cleansed crystal in a glass bowl filled with spring water and leave the bowl in the sunlight or moonlight for 12 hours. If making an elixir from a fragile, water-soluble or toxic crystal, use the indirect method and place the crystal inside a small glass jar before placing in the bowl of water. Either way, the water will become infused with the energy of the crystal. To store the elixir, remove the crystal after 12 hours and pour the liquid into an airtight container, where it can be stored for up to a week. For human consumption, 50% brandy or vodka can be added as a preservative to store it for longer than a week; however, this is not recommended for animal use.

Crystal Healing for Anxiety
Dioptase is a powerful healing crystal that has been used for ages. Dioptase is a green crystal used to purify and heal the heart as well as the mind. Not only does dioptase work well for humans, but it also works well for pets.
This healing crystal is known for its powers to reduce anxiety and promote a feeling of inner peace. When you have a pet that suffers from anxiety, either constantly or during certain times, such as thunderstorms, dioptase can work great to help soothe the pet and help the pet relax.
For animals that feel anxious all the time, try to get at least three of these crystals and place them in different areas of the house, ensuring that one is near the place they sleep most often.
If your pet experiences anxiety due to certain situations, like a storm or when strangers come over, you can keep one crystal near their bed to enhance relaxation during times of stress.

When to Use Crystals and When Not
Crystals are powerful healers, but they should not be a replacement for veterinary care for your pet if your pet truly needs it.
