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 5 out of 5 by from Best Food Ever! For the first time in years, Virgil has stopped obsessively licking his stomach and his fur is growing back. I have tried many different brands of cat food, from inexpensive to super premium. I don't know what the difference is with the Nutro Max, but we will stick with it. All my cats like it, and it's making this guy's life a lot less itchy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My picky girl loves the max cat chicken! My British Shorthair, Bonnie Blue, loves her dry max cat food! She is a picky eater and transitioned from the Nutro kitten food with no problems. Her Vet says she is healthy and her coat is lovely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from CORN product and wheat IS in list of ingredients Ground cornWhole grain cornCorn mealCorn gritsThe description proudly states NONE of the above are in this product. Yet there IS corn gluten and whole wheat, as well as rice. NO GRAINS are in a cat's normal diet. Why do you put them in here?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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!
