Overview and Key Benefits

  • Antioxidants
    Vitamin E, taurine, vitamin C, tomato pomace, 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 Indoor 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.
  • Hairball Management
    Oat fiber, tomato pomace and rice are excellent fiber sources, which help to pass any swallowed hair gently through the digestive tract and into the litter box. MAX® CAT Indoor Adult Formulas help promote a healthy coat, which may help minimize opportunities for hairballs! Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, along with zinc, help promote a lustrous coat and supple skin.
  • Shiny Coat
    Fish oil, sunflower oil, soybean 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 My Cats are in Love My cat has very bad allergies and we initially thought we were buying the best of another brand cat food. After some detective work and a few trips to the vet. We decided to switch her to the Nutro Max food and she's been "purrfect". No more snoring, nasal discharge or coughing. I feel bad that it took us 4 mths to figure this out. My girls love the food and I will not be switching.... Thank you NutroMax

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our kitties love nutro max cat! We rescued our kitties when they were about 4 and 6 months old. We weren't sure what food was best so we asked the vet and she suggested nutro. We started out with the kitten food and graduated to indoor adult when they were about a year old. They love the food and their coats are so full and shiny. And they never get hairballs! We love this food and will never switch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Grateful I met a representative of this product in a pet store when browsing for cat food for my new kittens I had just rescued. I've been feeding them this product since these kittens could eat dry food, and I have been extremely happy with this product. I get compliments from all of my company telling me how soft they are, and how intelligent they are. My cats listen to me, are happy, and are fit. They love it so much they beg for it. My mom has two cats that have been so picky about their food that they would leave pieces of it all over the floor. I recommended this to her and her two cats Love it. They also have greatly improved, even visually, in health. Her orange tabby was looking pretty lean and sketchy, and he's a whole new cat after she's switched. He's back to his happy self! This products is fantastic! I wouldn't hesitate in the slightest to recommend this product to other cat owners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats are your best customers! Both of my cats love this Nutro food. They are both healthy and both have shiny fur. They always come back for more. They do not have hairball problems either. They both have lots of energy. I am very happy with the Indoor Adult formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Fat Cat This cat food has done wonders for my cat. I had him on Indoor Iams at first and he would get sick a few times a week. Also, he wasn't staying at a steady weight (he started at 14 pounds and increased to 16 with Iams). And when I switched him to Indoor Max Cat he has stayed at his weight and hasn't gotten sick. I am soon going to try the weight control for him!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the larger pieces help my cats vomiting I have gone through 10 different kinds of food over the last several years. My cat scarfs down his food so fast and he would immediately vomit after eating, the typical small kibble would come up whole. After some testing at the vet found all is well with his health, we started experimenting with his food. finally it seems the larger kibble forces him to slow down and chew the food. So far no vomiting. this issue is very specific to my cat, but so far he loves the food.It does seem like the lack of corn product has helped also. the nutro natural choice was well like also, but the larger pieces of the max cat seem to do the trick for us. THANKS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definately recommend Indoor Adult Max Cat We have always feed our two long-hair kitties with the Max Cat brand. Their fur is really shiny and soft. We recently adopted a 5 year old long haired Ragdoll kitty. Her fur was ratty, dull, brittle, and she had dandruff. We slowly weaned her onto the Max Indoor Adult food, and within 5/6 weeks, her fur started getting really soft and shiny! It's been 8 weeks now and her fur is beautiful, shiny, soft, with no dandruff! I have to say that it really does matter what we feed our little friends.... =)
