The tooltip says Magic Damage so I figured it would work like the Beast Racial does, it boosts damage done (not attack power) so attacks do more damage but Devour heals for the same amount

And this is why I'm definitely going to do some testing in some pet duels to see what is going on. What made me notice was I would fight a Swamp Croaker and his Tongue Lash ability would only hit me for 2-3 damage per hit. Even at the lowest attack power and poorest quality, the tooltip on Tongue Lash states he should be doing 109 damage per hit and the Stoneskin tooltip says it should absorb 85 damage per hit.
Given this I'm not sure that the variation in damage explains the missing 20 damage...on the other hand a 10% buffed shield (just magic ability boost) would absorb 94 damage per hit and a 25% buffed shield (just healing boost) would absorb 106 damage per hit...
Fear not all I will report results back once I am home from work
