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. We’ve added real salmon protein, which adds to the taste cats find 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, 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 Salmon Protein
    Salmon is a rich source of DHA, which helps maintain a healthy central nervous system and good vision. NUTRO™ MAX® CAT Indoor Adult Salmon Flavor Cat Food includes real salmon protein to tempt even the most finicky cat.
  • 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.

Product Reviews

Indoor Adult is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 579.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutro has always been in our cats' lives. Chesney and Isis are 5 yrs. old and have always eaten Nutro food. They are very active cats and chase each other around the house. I usually switch between the chicken and salmon flavor to give them a little variety and they love each one equally. Thank you Nutro for providing our pets with quality food and helping to keep them in our lives for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How my cat's life changed! My cat Buckeye had been abandoned as a kitten. When I first got him he literally stuffed himself with the other cat food I had gotten him. He would eat until he was sick and then would throw up the food he had just eaten. His coat was stringy and matted because he was not receiving the nutrition he needed. I then switched to Nutro Max Cat and he simply thived. He is now almost 4 years old and he is a changed cat. His coat is glossy and his eyes are bright. He has more energy and does not get sick any more. He will nibble on the food all day long but he is simply a healthier and more satisfied cat because of the Nutro Max Cat food he eats every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it The dry food is a favorite in our house. Both out cats run to the bowls when we open the food drawer. It helps with the deigestion issues we had with out eldest cat, and really seems to make them feel good. The obviously love the taste too. The small fish shape is large enough that they have to bite it, but easy to chew, this has helped slow down their eating, very important for out eldest cat. THank you nutro!Stephanie.... and happy cats Reggie and Dixon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only food my cats will eat. I have received several different premium cat food samples over the years and I let my cats try them against Max Cat. They've probably sampled 10-15 different kinds of food and Max Cat ALWAYS wins over any of the others. I have 5 cats and not one of them has had a hairball since they started eating Max Cat. Their fur is glossy and beautiful and they are very healthy. I think it's amazing that ALL my cats chose Max Cat over any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabuloous My 2 rescued cats now have shiny coats, they no longer have hairballs, do not throw up anymore and let's just say the litter box does not smell bad anymore. They look forward to eating and are not gorging themselves as they were on other food and seemed very satisfied. They are ultra healthy and purr all the time. Their fur feels like a mink stole that my grandmother used to have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thought she was a goner! We have two cats, one is a 10 yr old female, spayed and extremely anxious about anything out of the ordinary. The other is a male about 7, we think, he's a rescue. Neither cat goes outside except on the rare occassion, so having a brand especially formulated for cats that don't get outdoors is a big plus.We got second dog, a larger breed that our current dog and the female cat just flat out freaked. She started shedding hair like no tommorrow and was always crying. We saw this Nutro product, Indoor Cat, and decided to try it. Since we started them on it almost 1 year ago, she has put on some much needed weight, her hair is full and thick again, she is still in fear of the big dog, but, so is our male cat, who is looking heathier and well cared for. "Jake" and "Spooky" definately are much healthier than before when they were eating a commercial brand. We are so glad we found and tried this cat food, because we thought "Spooky" the female was a goner. My wife was amased at her quick and solid recovery, thanks Nutro for caring about our animals!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I have been a pet owner for more than 15 years and have tried every kind of cat food made. By far, Max Cat is the best on the market. Not only do my cats enjoy this food, but it has more vitamins and is healthier than other brands. I have noticed less "waste" in the litter box and no extra trips to the vet (urinary tract infections, teeth problems, etc.) I fully endorse and recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for them and for me My two Persian male cats have this brand as their main staple. I even put it in small treat containers and use it for snacks. Just knowing Max Nutro is a good product of high quality and it shows by keeping their hair shiny. Their eyes are clear, even at 13+ years old. Max Nutro has great sales and that is when I stock up. Thanks, Nutro Max!
