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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by helped my sick kitty my senior cat Cleo was on a reduced carb diet because of diabetes but got lymphoma a few years after her diabetes diagnosis. at many points she got extreme nausea and had food aversion because of the lymphoma. max kitten kept her going for over a year because mixing it with her low carb dried food got her to eat. cleo has passed on, but whenever my other pets aren't feeling well and are fussy about food I offer them max kitten as a special treat and it always gets them to eat (they're all on low carb diets because of cleo's experience). thank you so much for such a tasty meal.(cleo was a maine coon, age 17, but somehow that breed doesn't appear in your list. i have 2 wegie cats, so i chose that breed instead. didn't see an "other" option as to breed) March 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Feeding Freenzie My Five Furry Friends all love their Max Cat food --- along with the four furry ferals outside. Its like a feeding freenzie when I come home from work. They are all rubbing up against the tall food canister - worshiping it- meowing to me to get it open and feed them.I know the food must be good for them because when I switched them over to it from Friskies - their fur got so silky and smooth. I mean it... before their fur was all dry and corse feeling. They also like the Nutro canned wet food.I would recommend making the switch for your cat too. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cats love it I used to buy Meow Mix, but I was told by a Petco salseman that Meow Mix is like feeding your cat candy. He told me that Nutro was healthy and wholsome. My newest kittens love this food, it keeps them from having stinky feces. Their coats are shiny, and they are energetic and playful. February 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful! When I got my kitten, Tank, i noticed that even though he had been given a clean bill of health by the vet he seemed to have an eating disorder. I didn't want to upset his stomach so I had continued feeding him what his former owner had fed him. However he would eat anything and everything he could get to. He ate so much and so fast that he'd make himself sick. I was getting tired of cleaning up after he ate and then immediately puked. I talked with my Aunt, a Nutro representative. She told me that most likely he wasn't getting enough nutrition which was why he'd continue eating until he threw up. She recommended MaxCat. Within a week Tank no longer acted starved and no longer gorged until sick. I will not be changing foods again. February 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by PURRFECT FOR OUR NEW KITTY WE RESCUED A 12 WEEK OLD KITTEN FROM A LOCAL AGENCY. THEY GAVE US SOME FOOD BUT WE HAVE ALWAYS FED OUR PETS NUTRO. SO WE BROUGHT HOME OUR NEW KITTY. HER NAME IS "HUNNY ANYA BISKIT" BECAUSE SHE IS SWEETER THAN HONEY ON A BISCUIT! (NOTE THE SPELLING). WE CALL HER HUNNY. WE USED THE FOOD SHE CAME WITH BUT THE BAG OF NUTRO WAS SITTING RIGHT THERE AND BEFORE WE COULD OPEN THE BAG SHE STARTED PURRRING AND LAYING ALL OVER THE BAG. WE KNEW THIS WAS THE RIGHT FOOD FOR HER. HUNNY IS NOW 6 MONTHS OLD AND TOTALLY ON NUTRO KITTEN. SHE LOVES HER FOOD AND PURRS WHEN IT IS MEAL TIME. HER COAT IS SO CLEAN AND SHINY AND SOFT! SHE HAS A LONG-HAIRED TAIL. WE NOTICE THAT SHE DOES NOT SHED! SHE IS SO CONTENT AND LOVING. HUNNY IS SO VERY SPECIAL AS SHE WAS A GIFT TO MY DAUGHTER FOR HER 21ST BIRTHDAY. MY DAUGHTER JUST LOVES HUNNY! February 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Way Less Stink! When I first got my two kittens, I was feeding them a kitten food that shall remain nameless. They seemed to love eating it, BUT Teton just kept making stinkers. She was so gassy, we didn't want her on our laps, or even in the room! The litter box was also a mess, runny huge waste from both kittens. After a few months I had enough, I went to my local pet store to talk to someone about different options for food that would still be in my price range. As we began to discuss Nutro Max, I found out that the main ingredient was meat (not a byproduct), it was also contained rice (not corn). These characteristics meant that it would improve the overall health of my kittens, lead to less waste in the litter box, and hopefully clear up Teton's (embarrassing and stinky) problem. I'm here today to tell you that it has been decidedly less stinky here at our house every since. My kittens love the food, have shiny coats, contribute less waste to the litter box, and most importantly Teton is not stinky anymore (at least not when we're around)! February 17, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by My cat refuses to eat I bought this food due to a recommendation from the nutro company sales person.At first my cat loves it!After a few months into it the cat refuses to eat as much as he should and kept begging for food even though the bowl is still full.I don't buy big bags because I know very well my cat the he will not eat as much when the cat food reaches the bottom of the bag.I guess my cat is just picky.I was also hoping for non-grain food but Nutro doesn't provide non-grain cat food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by THE GOOCH LOVES MAX CAT!! My Aby kitten, Gucci a.k.a. "The Gooch", cannot get enough of Nutro Max Cat Kitten formula. I attempted multiple wet and dry foods (upset tummy) and stumbled upon Nutro Max. The little guy is border line obsessed!! He has gained weight, remains beyond active, has healthy bowel movements and is receiving the proper nutrition to live a healthy life. We are both greatful to have come across this wonderful product.In a few months, he will no longer be a "kitten" so we plan to move up to the CAT formula. We are both looking forward to it for sure. I would recommend this product to any cat owner. February 17, 2011
