Jill, could it be that the cats you are visiting have been on this diet a while , have lost weight  and the owner has not adjusted to this, has not gone back to the vets and thinks nothing more of continuing the last instruction from the vets. Sounds like they should go back to  regular meals.

To answer your other question , yes , the food company , usually Hills, 'signs up' the vet on loads of financial inducement and as along as they prescribe a diet of just that food then the vets are quids in.  Same as doctors and drug company reps really.  So even on a check up , the vet has an interest on saying , oh , puss is a bit heavy, I could prescribe a little weight loss diet for a few months if you want ? We Know how this invariably ends up.
