I don't what your prescription dry food is, but it may be crap [Science Diet is the only prescription cat food I know of and it is horrid, horrid food]. So are you sure he needs it as opposed to a high quality cat food like Blue Buffalo, Pinnacle, Orijen, etc?
I steer clear of wet food unless its of a high quality brand like the ones I listed. My parents give their 13+ year old skinny guy a teaspoon or so of tuna fish in oil once a day. It's worked great for him, he's not fat but he filled in and is healthier than ever.
Feeding your cat poor quality food doesn't give him Enpugh nutrients to store. So you may be feeding a ton of something low quality but since it's mostly garbage, it'll pass through. Versus a high quality food that you can feed 1/2 a cup a day and be battling with obesity, lol.
