Overview and Key Benefits

  • NATURAL NUTRITION MAXIMUM HEALTH®
    NUTRO® MAX® CAT Food is made with select ingredients and the vitamins and minerals your cat needs for health and wellness. With the taste of real chicken, your cat will find NUTRO® MAX® CAT Food irresistible! NUTRO® MAX® CAT Food is rich in omega-6 fatty acids and zinc to help support healthy skin and a lustrous coat.
  • Antioxidants
    Vitamin E, taurine, vitamin C, cranberries and blueberries provide excellent sources of antioxidants for a healthy immune system. Taurine is also essential for your cat’s vision and heart function.
  • Real Chicken Protein
    The #1 ingredient in NUTRO® MAX® CAT Adult Cat Food is chicken meal, made from real chicken with most of the water and fat removed. Additionally, we then add chicken to enhance the flavor your cat loves! NUTRO® MAX® CAT Food never uses chicken heads, feet or intestines, which may be found in products containing chicken by-product meal.
  • Shiny Coat
    Fish oil and chicken fat are rich sources of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These fatty acids and zinc help support supple skin and a lustrous coat.
  • The Natural Nutrition Difference
    Highly digestible natural ingredients — fortified with essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids — truly make the difference. NUTRO® MAX® CAT Food is naturally preserved — no artificial chemicals like BHA, BHT or ethoxyquin. We do not add artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. NUTRO® MAX® CAT Food uses easy-to-digest brewers rice; never any sorghum, ground corn, whole grain corn, corn meal or corn grits — which can be more difficult to digest.
  • Guaranteed Great Taste
    Our quality ingredients, unique kibble shape and natural flavors guarantee love at first bite! In fact, we’re so sure your cat will love NUTRO® MAX® CAT Food that we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back!

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Wasted money I've fed my 3 cats this for a year. They started on it as kittens and loved it. Picked up a new bag as we were out and my cats refuse to eat it. I noticed the kibble size was smaller and the texture was rougher. My cats are not picky eaters either. So now I have a 16 pound bag of food that my cats won't eat and am now looking for another food. Very disappointed to say the least. August 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Prettiest "Mouser" in Town "Max Cat" keeps our Himalayan's coat shiny and "clump-free." She's a white, outside kitty that lives in the country but her fur looks like she should be in a palace. When we've run short and just bought something else to get through, it really shows! We ALL love Max Cat. August 16, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lower consumption and glorious coat! While this food is more expensive than a lot of other brands out there, I can tell you that there is nothing that compares to it. On the front end it may seem pricey but my three cats are more easily satisfied and therefore eat less at each feeding. In addition, one of my cats always seemed to shed like the proverbial cheap rug. It was not long - maybe 2 weeks - of eating the Nutro Max exclusively that I noticed a tremendous change in the condition of her coat. It is now shiny and soft and I no longer find myself chasing down kitty hair tumbleweeds in my home. This is definitely a pet food worth the price. July 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent!!!! Bravo!!! The only food I would feed my "furry children". They just love it and it is very healthy for them. I make sure I never run short. Always have a large bag on hand. April 23, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Really miss the old formula! This used to be the best cat food for both my cats that weigh about 20 pounds each and are about 14 years old. I needed to put them on a low ash diet. For years, I purchased this food and loved the price I paid. About 4 years ago, both my cats started vomiting and when I changed there food. They were well again. I was told that they had changed the formula and more fish oil was added. I would like to try the formula again and see how they react. Thank you! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's a hit with the cats! Our Maine Coon Cat MandyKitty goes gaga over this food, especially the roasted chicken flavor.All of the cats we had in our care over the years, including bottle raised, orphaned kitties, became healthy, strong kittens and cats.I am actually alergic to cats and feeding NUTRO (All types of cat foods from NUTRO) helps to keep the shedding down, including dander.When our orphaned kitties start eating solid food, they are always introduced to NUTRO. The new adoptive parents are set up with coupons and are adviced to keep the kitties/cats on NUTRO to assure a healthy, happy life for the Feline Amors.Thank you Nutro, you have no idea how many lives you helped saving here at our home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Team Orange I never knew that feeding my cats other types of foods was like feeding them McDonalds on a daily basis. Since switching to Max Cat, my 3 orange cats have more energy, their coats are shiny and they are lean mean kitty machines!They love the chicken flavor and I look forward to reviewing the salmon flavor for them as soon as we finish the chicken!Go Team Orange!
