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.
  • 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.
  • Helps Maintain Healthy Weight
    NUTRO® MAX® CAT Indoor Weight Control Cat Food contains L-carnitine to help your cat’s body burn fat. L-carnitine, combined with decreased levels of fat (vs. NUTRO® MAX® CAT Indoor Adult Cat Food), helps keep less active cats at ideal weight.
  • 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 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 cat will love NUTRO® MAX® CAT Food that we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 17reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My cats Love this food! I have tried a few kinds of weight control food in the past but the cats would not eat them, so put that idea aside. Then the other day I saw this one and thought oh why not? All the while shaking my head at the 'great taste" written on the bag, figured yeah right, what are the chances of that? Oh boy was I wrong! They love it! I can't believe how they want this over their previous preferred food. Thank you!! We have limited the intake and are holding weight, maybe now they will actually lose weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by USN Retired The thing I like about this product is that it tends to reduce the tipical indoor belly hang and unlike some weight control feeds this one allows the cat to have plenty of energy for play and other sthings. I have two cats and find the 16 pound bag the best value. November 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lola Likes! My cat is very spoiled, and this is the ONLY dry food she will eat! She isn't actually over weight, but again, for whatever reason, Max Cat is the only dry food I she will eat.When we were traveling with her recently, I had taken her food away 12 hours prior to the flight to avoid any "accidents" on the plane, per the vet's directions, and I have a hilarious video or Lola opening up the Max Cat food bag, standing on her hind legs, and helping herself!!!! In other words, No one was taking away her Max Cat! December 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Miracle Worker!!!!!!! I noticed my Main Coon cat (which probably weighs 25-30 pounds) who is only 3 years old was vomiting daily. It got to the point to where he was vomiting up his food and hair balls everyday MULTIPLE TIMES. Also when he went to the bathroom it made the whole house smell absolutely horrible. I mean it was BAD. I finally decided to go to Pet Smart and check out the foods they had to offer. I was recommended this product since he is an inside cat, is overweight and is very fluffy. The guy working there said the food had something in it ( I think he said the beet pulp) that helped with decreasing the smell of bowel movements and with digestion. I bought it on sale and I'm telling you......immediately IT WORKED. NO MORE BAD SMELLING BOWEL MOVEMENTS and NO MORE VOMITING!!! Also, his coat looks beautiful and shiny. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone having the same problems with their cat that I did. It may be a little more expensive than the other brands out there but it's definitely WORTH THE MONEY!!!!!!!! As far as the weight loss....I haven't had him on it but maybe a month so I will have to see how the weight loss goes over the next few months. I will never go back to any other brand. This product has me sold!!!! I'm a very happy customer. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! March 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent choice for my cats My vet told us 2 months ago that both of my cats were a bit overweight. We had had them on a diet for 6 months prior to but with NO LUCK, and they were on Iams Indoor Weight Control. I did a little research and transitioned them to Nutro MAX cat. They both lost a pound in 2 months! Our vet was very pleased with their weight loss and encourage us to keep it up. My cats love love love Nutro MAX Cat! Their coats have never been softer and they are more active, due to their weight loss. Highly recommended!!! January 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big gir's need loving too.... My house cat was big girl at 20 pounds. She couldn't jump on the bed, chair or do anything a cat should do! Just one fat and lazy cat! I decided to put her on max cat weight control and she is now a healthy 10 pounds she is now jumping on the bed, more playful and enjoying life! It's so great to see her living life to the full! They say cat's have 9 lives I feel like she got a couple back! December 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I only feed my cat Nutro! My cat, Captain Snuggles, is almost 4 now, and he has been eating Nutro products his whole life.
