New Hampshire's rules are issued by the Board of Veterinary Medicine and seem to be fairly straightforward.  They appear below.

Paul Bergeron
City Clerk
229 Main Street
Nashua, NH  03060


Vet 701.01 Daily Reports.

(a) Every veterinarian shall keep daily written reports of the animals he or she treats. Records for companion animals shall be kept for each animal, but records for economic animals may be maintained on a group or client basis. The records shall be readily retrievable and shall be kept for a period of at least 5 years following the last treatment or examination.

(b) The records required by (a) above shall include, but not be limited to, the following:

(1) Name, address and telephone number of the owner;

(2) Name, number or other identification of the animal or group;

(3) Species, breed, age, sex and color of the animal;

Vet 701.02 Transfer of Records.

(a) Although the original physical records remain the property of the veterinarian, the veterinarian shall comply with any request by the animal's owner for a copy of the records. A minimal fee may be charged but the sending of the copies shall not be contingent upon payment of an outstanding balance.

(b) All previous veterinary medical records shall become available to the new owner of an animal.

Any of you folks working with Veterinary records? I could use a starting
