"875-015-0020
Minimum Requirements for Veterinary Medical Facilities and Veterinary Licensees
Each veterinary medical facility and veterinary licensee shall comply with the following:

Current language to be deleted:
(6)(e) If requested, a prescription shall be provided to a client for medications prescribed by the veterinarian under a valid VCPR.

Proposed language:
(11) Prescriptions:  If requested, a written prescription shall be provided to a client for medications prescribed by the veterinarian under a valid VCPR.  The facility shall post in a place conspicuous to the public a notice indicating availability of written prescriptions.  The facility shall use, or replicate the specifications of, a notice template provided by the Board.

NOTE:  Senate Bill 222 would have made this a statutory requirement.  The sponsor withdrew the bill with assurance that the Board would address the matter through rulemaking.  The Board convened a rule advisory committee, including representation from OVMA and PVMA, and the committee recommended the proposed amendment."
