This has brought a big smile to my face - the word 'prescription' is a complete misnomer when applied to foods. Medicines need to be prescribed and vet meds have different classifications - VOM, AVM-GSL etc with only suitably qualified people being able to sell them. These prescription foods have no classifications as they are not meds, they are just food. It took a lot of digging but I finally found the ingredients of a tin of 'prescription' wet dog food - (the company wouldn't give me the ingredients over the phone because I wasn't a qualified vet) - it was written in tiny print on the inside of the label - ingredients - cereal and cereal derivatives, meat and meat derivatives - more or less the same as Chappie but a bit more expensive at £2.80 for a 240g tin! Hope they win or even just highlight this 'con'. Only thing is I can't see anyone on this side of the pond having the clout to stand up to the likes of Nestle and Mars, perhaps only the EU.
