I hope the day never comes when my vet recommends one of these overpriced foods loaded with cheap fillers.

I mentioned this in my update on Nimbus' asthma, but I was delighted last Friday when I went back to our vet that there was no sign of any prescription food in the office. I'd noticed a couple bags of Hills a year ago that looked like they were gathering dust on a shelf in the lobby. Now they're gone. I asked and was told that they hadn't sold any of it in so long that there was no point in displaying it. The lady vet who saw us (a different doc than last time) seemed happy with what I told her about Nimbus' diet.
