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 MAX® 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!
  • Healthy Skin & Coat
    Fish oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil, and poultry fat are rich sources of Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids. These Fatty Acids and Zinc help provide for a lustrous coat and supple skin. MAX® CAT food also helps promote a healthy coat…which means less hair around the house!
    Highly digestible natural ingredients — fortified with essential vitamins, minerals and taurine — truly make the difference. MAX® CAT products are naturally preserved — no artificial chemicals like BHA, BHT or ethoxyquin. We do not add artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. MAX® CAT food uses easy to digest ground rice and ground whole wheat; never any sorghum or 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 MAX® CAT food that we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back!
  • MAX® Products Add Variety to Your Pet’s Diet

Feeding Guidelines

Daily portions can vary according to age, weight and activity level of your cat. The entire suggested daily amount should be placed in your cat’s feeding dish. A supply of fresh drinking water should be provided at all times.

Overweight Cats: If your cat is overweight and is currently on a premium adult maintenance cat food, calorie reduction will occur when switching to MAX® CAT Senior cat food. For further weight reduction, reduce the daily amount by 1/8 to 1/2 cup depending on activity and weight.

Underweight Cats: If your cat is underweight, feed a mixture of MAX® CAT Senior canned and dry cat food several times a day and see your veterinarian regularly.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 3 senior cats happy cats I have 3 senior cats in my home. They ate through a bag of food so fast! I want a big bag. Why aren't they available? I may have to find a different food. March 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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?? February 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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!!! March 15, 2011
