Overview and Key Benefits

  • Antioxidants
    Vitamin E, Taurine, Vitamin C, 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! MAX® CAT food never uses chicken heads, feet or intestines, which may be found in products containing chicken by-product meal.
  • Helps Maintain Healthy Weight
    MAX® CAT Weight Control Roasted Chicken Flavor cat food contains L-Carnitine to help your cat’s body burn fat. L-Carnitine combined with decreased levels of fat (vs. MAX® CAT Adult cat food) helps keep less active cats at ideal weight.
    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
    Does your cat enjoy wet food? MAX® CAT food offers a variety of irresistible flavors. And don’t forget NUTRO® MAX® Dog dry formulas, canned foods, and treats for the canine members of your pet family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthy Choice I selected this brand because of it's natural ingredients. The weight watcher choice has kept my cat at a healthy weight. September 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for my "not fat, they're fluffies" My finicky eaters want to live on cat treats and not eat "the good stuff" but they actually run to the dishes now. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thank Goodness!! It's really a godsend to have this product out there as a purchase option for our pets! I researched a lot of different foods before selecting NutroMax for my cat. Since mine is an indoor, he really needs to not have fatty, non-nutritious, vitamin enriched food to keep him balanced and healthy- all of which this product helps to maintain! If you look at the first ingredient, it's chicken meal, unlike most other cat foods which just contain a bunch of fillers and junk. I'm grateful that I can offer my beloved pal something decent to eat which will help keep him feeling great and living longer, right along with me! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great food, So I am told by my cats I have been using Nutro Weight Control Roasted Chicken Flavor for sometime now my cats like it and as the saying goes if the cats are not happy no one is happy. I have 3 cats and finding something that they all like and is good for them is a must. Nutro make's good quality products.I will continue to use them. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My cats and I are very happy! I switched to Max Cat Weight Control Roasted Chicken flavor for my two cats after a sales associate at my local pet store mentioned the fact that chicken by-products are not used in Max Cat and suggested that my cats might shed less and have better looking coats on this diet. In addition, my vet wanted my male tabby to lose just a little weight, so I decided to try the Nutro product. Two years later, I am very happy to say that not only do my cats love the food, but their cats are glossier then ever and they do shed less! My male tabby has lost two pounds and both my vet and I are very happy with his health! March 10, 2011
