Why is prescription vet food full of corn and other fillers?


They sell it for about 10 dollars more than healthy food and they use low quality meats and fillers. I am tired of seeing people switch to a food their vet recommends when it is just terrible compared to what they could be purchasing. My vet had recommended a Hill's prescription dry food for my lab and I could not believe the ingredients. The top one is CORN. Next is pork fat, not nutritious and just there for flavor. After that is a chicken by product, soybean meal, corn gluten meal, soybean mill run. What gives with vets recommending these terrible ingredients?
