As much as your cat enjoys their meal and they look really adorable being all chubby, it is still important to moderate their diet. In addition, always leave a fresh bowl of clean water for your cat.
For cats that are having Nutro Max Adult Roasted Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food for the first time, the transition must be gradual and should take around 7 – 10 days. During the first two days, give 25% Nutro and 75% of the old cat food. Over time, increase the amount of Nutro until your cat has fully adjusted to his new, healthier, and tastier meal.
The Bottom Line
The Nutro Max Adult Roasted Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food’s main ingredient is chicken, making it an ideal source of protein. Along with this, this cat food is packed with healthy fatty acids such as Omega 3 and 6. The recipe also comes with tomato pomace that is made from a dried mixture of real tomatoes, perfect for vitamin C. The antioxidants in this adult dry cat food is a great addition as well, with blueberries and cranberries for a boost in the immune system. There are easy to digest brewers rice and oats for natural fibers that help cats get rid of the hairball.
Another great thing about NUTRO products is that you are assured their ingredients come from select suppliers, all within the Mars Petcare network.
There are no artificial colors, sweeteners, or flavors, but corn gluten meal is high up on the ingredient list and closely followed by other carbs. As such, we cannot recommend this food.
