Best of Chandler
Dr. Kristin Lawmaster
Dr. Kristin Lawmaster grew up in southern California, and graduated from Cal Poly Pomona in 1996 with a B.S. in Zoology. She attended the University of Illinois, College of Veterinary Medicine, where she received her veterinary degree in 2000. She started her veterinary career in Monterey, California, where she owned an animal hospital for a few years. After having children she realized practice ownership was too time-consuming, so she sold her practice and moved to Arizona in 2006, to be closer to family.
In the summer of 2013, her parents realized they needed to euthanize their beloved golden retriever, Cheyenne, and at the time she happened to be preparing for a camping trip in the mountains. They drove all the way from California to meet her at the campsite. This was a heartbreaking and stressful situation for all of them, but it was made easier when they witnessed how clearly happy and relaxed Cheyenne was in this beautiful setting, among the pine trees, and surrounded by those who loved her.
When it was over, Dr. Lawmaster couldn’t help thinking to herself how lucky their dog was to leave this world in such a comforting environment. She wished every pet could have a similar experience within the sanctity of familiarity of their own home. And so she created A Peaceful Farewell.
