While I agree with the accessability of written prescriptions for any client including my own, I don't believe the stringent expectations of this legislation is appropriate. It will make for more unnecessary work for veterinarians and potentially confusion for clients.
Just leaving it as notice in some form be given to clients that they have the right to a timely and unreimbursed written prescription should suffice.
