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.
  • DHA & Antioxidants
    DHA fortified to help brain development — helping your kitten become alert, playful and trainable. Vitamin E, taurine, vitamin C, cranberries and blueberries provide excellent sources of antioxidants to help support the immune system for a long life. Taurine is also essential for your kitten’s vision and heart function.
  • Real Chicken Protein
    The #1 ingredient in NUTRO® MAX® CAT Kitten 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 kitten loves! MAX® CAT Kitten Food never uses chicken heads, feet or intestines, which may be found in products containing chicken by-product meal.
  • Builds Strong Muscles & Bones
    The balanced nutrition of NUTRO® MAX® CAT Kitten Food provides ideal levels of protein, calcium and zinc formulated for proper kitten muscle growth and bone and teeth development. Our Kitten formula is also enriched with vitamin D for better calcium absorption.
  • The Natural Nutrition Difference
    Highly digestible natural ingredients — fortified with essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids — truly make the difference. NUTRO® MAX® CAT Kitten Food is naturally preserved — no artificial chemicals like BHA, BHT or ethoxyquin. We do not add artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. NUTRO® MAX® CAT Kitten 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 kitten will love NUTRO® MAX® CAT Kitten Food that we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back!

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unclear about how much to feed kitten at 8 months As she goes from 8-16 weeks, I am to feed her 1/3 cup per day? That's less than at 6 weeks. Also, how many times to I administer the 1/3 cup? The bag indicates per day! My cat would starve getting 1/3 a cup per day no?I'm new at this so please any advice would help. August 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nutro max kitten food I haven a kitten named skipper that we rescued I switched from hills science diet to nutro max kitten and kitten skipper loves this food and has a nice shiny coat so I recommend this food ok bye July 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Max Cat Kitten Food Excellence We have raised our kittens on Max Cat Dry Kitten food exclusively and they have grown up to be beautiful, healthy, playful actively curious cats. They always eat all of the food we put out, never turn away from it. They love this food and as pet owners we love it and recommend it. May 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Healthy and Flavorful As a certified veterinary technician, I know how important it is to feed pets high-quality food and Max Cat is one of the best. My cats love the taste, their coats are shiny, and they do not soil the litter pan as much as they would on other foods.The only thing I would change about the kitten formula is the size of the pieces. Little ones have a hard time getting those large bits into their mouths. I foster abandoned kittens and feed them Fromme until they are old enough to eat the larger sized pieces of Nutro because I really don't have time to crush the Nutro in a sandwich bag with a mallet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kittens Love It After getting my kitten back in May, I wanted to make sure we got a healthy food for him to eat. After reading online recommendations, I decided to go with this food (& the equivalent for our dog.) They both love it and we havent had any issues. We recently got a second kitten & he love the food as well & no issues thus far. January 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kittens in the Kitchen We have four kittens and one adult cat in our home. They LOOOOVE the kitten roasted chicken flavor food!! We used to keep the biggest bag we could buy of it on the kitchen counter, but when we are not home, the kittens will push the bag off the counter and spill it on the floor to eat it!! As a solution, we bought those cereal plastic containers and put the cat food in there, but my little brother recently mistook it for cereal and ATE IT! I think he liked it too! :P Our kittens (and brother) are growing strong from the real protein!! :DOn a side note, this brand is a little pricier but because it has more real protein, it fills them up quicker and they eat less of it to get full (which is a must have with five cats!!) Great addition to the wet food! March 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only food our kittens start on! I have been breeding and showing Maine Coons for 22 years. I start my kittens on Max Cat Kitten and have never experienced digestive issues as they transition from mother's milk to dry food. They gain well, have bright eyes and great coats. All the kittens are sent to their new homes with a bag of Max Kitten and instructions to continue them on Nutro Max products for their lifetime for happy, healthy kittens and cats! March 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by my girls have the most gorgeous coats! I've been a long time user of Nutro foods, but it had been a long time since I'd had any need for the kitten version until earlier this year when I fostered then adopted Bookay and Lilybear (sisters).They love their crunchy food, and I've never seen such gorgeous gleaming coats. We also love the 'wet' kitten food as a daily treat! Thanks, Nutro. March 13, 2011
