Question: What crystals can help my dog with hip dysplasia?
Thank you for reaching out to us.
I am so sorry to hear about your pup. It hurts when our furbaby is in pain and we can't always do something about it :(
*Please note that I am not a doctor and cannot give medical advice. It's always a good idea to visit your local vet for advice and to ensure everything is fine physically. Crystals shouldn't substitute that but can be used to complement other forms of therapy.
The first crystal that came to my mind was Howlite and while I know it can be good for teeth and bones, I wasn't sure why it would pop into my mind. Howlite can be help with physical pain but can also help during stressful times.
Rose Quartz also comes to mind. Rose Quartz can be helpful with general aches and pains but it's also very calming.
Smokey Quartz and Rainbow Fluorite are known to be good pain relievers. Although, I find that pets can be a little put off by Smokey Quartz so if he/she doesn't like that crystal, don't push it.
Malachite can also be used to help with pain relief.
Carnelian can help to boost physical vitality, especially if they've been lying down or sleeping for a long time. When this happens and they get up, it can be quite painful and Carnelian can help to prevent that. It warms up the body.
These are crystals recommended for hip pain from our Common Conditions Guide online: Azurite, Petrified Wood, Smokey Quartz, Tiger Iron
What you can try is to massage his/her hips with the chosen crystal. Just a gentle massage if he/she will allow you to do so. Pay attention as well, because once they've had enough, they'll show you and may move away. I would advise to stick with tumbled, smoothly polished crystals or rounded crystal wands for massages.
You can also put the crystals in a little pouch which you can put near his/her bed so that he/she can slowly absorb the crystal energy. Make sure that your furbaby will not be able to swallow the crystals.
Also, what I've found to help, is to keep the hip area warm because cold can aggravate the pain in the hips.
I hope this helps a bit :)
