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.
  • 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 from This product give our cat all he needs. Our siamese loves his food. So far keeping down his weight. Our cat is not over weight yet but not far from it his vet says so were watching this close. I'm told thinner animals live longer and that's what we want. Our vet tells us we are in charge of our cats health and weight so be good pet parents and do what is right for him. So we are and chose to feed him Max

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that this product doesn't have by products! My cats (and I) love Max Cat Indoor Weight Control formula! Being indoor only, they do not get the exercise that they would outside, so having food that is formulated for their more sedentary lifestyles is wonderful! My female cat was slightly overweight, but after 6 months of being on this formula, she is now back to a good weight. Both cats love the taste of the chicken...yum! :) It was very important to me that I find a cat food that was natural and with no by products. Nutro fits that bill. Thank you, Nutro!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy for the Tummy (and Other Body Parts) When we switched to Max Cat the litter box was noticeably less odiforous. Plus our cats LOVE the taste. In fact, they will claw open the new bag as soon as we bring it inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product helps immensely with litter clean up. I find my litter box is much easier to clean. I have 4 cats and it is quite a job anyways but thanks to Nutro my cats must have less waste to pass. Thanks for your product NUTRO :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weight loss success! Shortly after getting spayed, my cat's weight increased a bit. She couldn't get full and begged for food everytime I went to the kitchen. I tried other brands' weight formulas, but she didn't like them. She loves this food! But luckily it keeps her fuller, longer, so she has been able to drop two pounds since I switched. Instead of bingeing, she rations her food and comes back to it at regular intervals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Multi-cat households We have five cats: one too fat, one too skinny, one with urinary health issues, and two with digestive issues. We were feeding them three different foods, which worked for the most part, but we were always worried about them eating each others' leftovers and getting the wrong diet. Plus it was a pain to feed them three different foods. We wanted a food that we could give all five, but we were never able to find one that every cat liked and would eat. Well, Nutro Max Indoor Weight Control turned out to be the solution! It has been six months since we switched, and all of the cats are happy... and healthier than they were before!
