Overview and Key Benefits

    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 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 from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long tem satisfaction 9 years ago my daughter worked in a pet store while attending Salisbury University. Some people brought 2 kittens in and dropped them off. A blue tip Siamese and an orange tabby. She kept them. They had a litter and we kept 2 of them, male and female. Then the landlord said, no pets, so we got mom and dad too. My daughter learned at the pet center that Nutro was the best quality cat food on the market and that is all she ever gave them and we continued the process. That is all they have ever had and they still like it. I get it at the Petsmart at Arundel Mills, Hanover MD.Bailey, Mickey, Kahze and Oliver. All Nutro cats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cat food has improved the wellness of my cats I used to have them on just a grocery brand of cat food and they were vomiting alot. But since I have changed to Nutro that has stopped and I noticed they don't go to the litter box as often either. And that makes me happy cause with 7 cats i'm cleaning less and the cats are happy too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love it. My 2 Siamese cats both love the chicken flavor dry food. The younger one a 4 year old male only eats dry food and people food. He however will not eat anything that comes in a can. the 10 year old female eats canned cat food and your chicken flavor. neither one will eat the salmon flavor though. All the neighborhood cats also come to our house to beg for the dry food. They apparently prefer it to what they are getting at their homes. They are definitely not strays. But have good taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good All Around I bought a bag of the Max Cat roasted chicken flavor after it was recommended by one of the sales staff at my local pet store.My cats loved it so much that they finished the first bag in three weeks.They crunch on it whenever they have the chance but thats fine by me because their coats look shiny,their eyes are bright and they run like little kittens even though they are three years old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more Hairballs My wife's cat had extreme hairball problems like almost daily problems. We started using Max Cat and the hairball problem stopped and the cats overall health improved and her coat regained its luster and shined. Thank you Nutro.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GOOD CAT FOOD FOR THE MONEY I worked as a vet tech and a lot of my clients didn't have a lot of money and want to know what kind of pet food to feed their cat. I would always recommend Nutro. I believe in good food for pets and not buying their food from Superstores. I has also feed this to my cats and they have never had a problem with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stopped leaking better than pipe weld. We switched to Nutro Max Cat from another premium food mainly due to price increases. We have a cat that has a food sensitivity, and unfortunately it makes the little guy "leaky". To say the least, this is a REAL problem if the food we serve will not agree with Sprout. I was very happy though when we switched foods and Sprout had no issues whatsoever! His coat is looking good, his weight is up and he's just a joy to be around. Furthermore, we are a multicat household and I have seen less vomiting, healthy coats, healthy bright eyes, and good energy from all of our furry friends. Nutro hit it out of the park with this product!
