Do profs need to write a different LOR for DO schools than for MD schools?

I am hoping to apply to both DO and MD schools. I am in the process of trying to get my LORs from my professors. Obviously I know I need a LOR from a DO for the DO schools, but do the professor letters need to be different for the DO schools than they are for the MD schools? One of my professors mentioned that MSUCOM asks the recommender to talk about what your motivations are for osteopathy...does anyone know if that's true and if other DO schools require that too?

No. I told each of my professors in the letter to just say "medical program" or medical school if referring to it in order to keep it general. That way it could cover allopathic and osteopathic. I had no problem with that.
