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, 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
    NUTRO™ MAX® CAT Food is formulated with 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, 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 Senior Cat Food uses easy-to-digest ground whole wheat and 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!

Product Reviews

Senior is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 623.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigger bags! My senior cats love this food and don't consume nearly as much as other brands due to the fact (I think!) that it's a much more healthy food for them rather than cat food that just has fillers. However ~ I want to buy larger bags of this product instead of having to run to the pet store every three weeks or so to buy just the 6 pound bag. Any chance of that happening, NATURAL CHOICE??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky Cat As my cat has gotten older, now 15, she has become extremely picky! I purchased numerous foods and gave her a choice, she only eats the max cat senior! I am upset that I can no longer find the large bags in my area. I tried the max cat adult but it is not the same for her. I wish I could order the senior online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bag size I just started giving this food to my three cats. It has reduced the constipation problem of my 13 year old cat. I usually go through a large bag a month, but am only able to find a 6 pound bag in the large box pst stores. The manager said he was not allowed to get the larger bags in his store. WHAT????

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ONLY Food Our neighbor's cat started visiting us two years ago on a daily basis. I wanted him to have a "treat" by eating a different type of food then he got at home. Via Petco I obtained a list of "natural" cat foods...and sent for samples. I received many from several companies, but NUTRO is the only food he eats! He is so picky he will not eat any fresh fish or meat, but after two years he cant get his fill of Nutro Senior Cat Food. Thanks!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every cat comes running! We have four senior cats in our home and each one is addicted to the Senior Roasted Chicken Flavor Max cat dry food. If I accidentally leave the bag out, they will tear into it like crazy kitties! My 14 year year old, Frenzy, is a picky eater in his older age yet he crunches away when I pour the food in the bowls which always makes me very happy to see him enjoy his food. This brand is a wallet saver and kitty pallet saver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Checkup from VET I have two senior mainly outdoor cats and my vet recently said that she's NEVER seen such healthy teeth, eyes and coats. She also couldn't believe how old they were to look this good (they are both 12 and brother/sister). They play outside all day and I let them eat only at night. When I first switch to Max Cat about 8 months ago, they starting coming in for dinner regularly around 6pm~ready for their Max Cat! They love it and I feel good about feeing them such a healthy cat food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Cats love the taste I feed my 4 senior cats this food. They love the taste and always come back for more. I even have a cat that has a sensative stomach and she has no probelm with this food. I would HIGHLY recommend this food to everyone of my friends that have either dogs or cats. Nutro is a brand of food I can TRUST! To keep my pets Healthy and Happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I am on the second bag of Nutro Max cat food for senior cats. The cats really like the food & they are no longer vomiting on my floor. Before we had to clean up messes almost every day. We also do not need to change the cat box as often. This is definitely a win-win situation for our cats & us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat loves this product Along with my cat enjoying the great taste, it's good for him too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat loves it My cat went from the adult food to the Senior flavor with no problems whatsoever. She loves it and her coat is still soft and shiny. She is also very strong. She can actually move the sliding glass door and I think I can attribute that to her eating the Max products. I've never fed her anything else and the vet says she is extremely healthy. Good product. Very pleased.
