We already "provide pet owners the **ability to receive** a copy of veterinary prescriptions." Clients are given written scripts whenever they ask. To require a written script for everything is a HUGE drain on the time of busy veterinarians. Maine legislature resoundingly defeated a measure like this. Please see transcripts from veterinarians who opposed LD 676, An Act to Enact Requirements Concerning Veterinary Prescriptions Legislative Updates: LD676: Regarding requiring veterinary prescriptions was voted out of committee as Ought Not to Pass. http://www.mainelegislature.org/legis/bills/display_ps.asp LD=676&snum=125
