Nutro Max Chicken & Lamb Formula For Senior Cats is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for the maintenance of adult cats.

Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Nutro Max Chicken & Lamb Formula For Senior Cats with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken broth. Chicken broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, chicken broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The second ingredient is chicken, which is an excellent source of protein and fat.

The third ingredient is cod. Although cod is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw cod contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of cod is dramatically reduced. Therefore, it's important to ensure that other meat sources are included within the first few ingredients to ensure the product derives most of its protein from meat.

The fourth ingredient is chicken liver. Chicken liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, chicken liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.

The fifth ingredient is ground rice. Ground rice is a gluten-free carbohydrate source. As long as the bran and germ of the grain are intact, rice can provide a notable amount of fiber and nutrition. However, because the type of rice ("brown" or "white") is not specified, we cannot make this determination.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nutro Max Chicken & Lamb Formula For Senior Cats are not as important as the first five ingredients.

However, collectively they still have a significant impact on the overall quality of the product. Therefore, we'll continue discussing the remaining ingredients in this Nutro recipe.

Next we have lamb liver. Organ meats like lamb liver are an excellent source of protein, fat, and essential vitamins and minerals. Although organs may not sound appealing, organs are an important component of a carnivorous animal's diet.

The next ingredient is lamb. Lamb is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, lamb contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of lamb is dramatically reduced after cooking.

Then we have pea. Peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.

The remaining ingredients in this Nutro Max recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives most of its protein from animal based sources. This is an excellent property because meat based protein contains all of the necessary amino acids required by cats. In our option, this is one of the most important properties to judge when reviewing pet food, therefore we believe this is an exceptional product in this regard.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.

The official PawDiet rating for Nutro Max Chicken & Lamb Formula For Senior Cats is 3.0 out of 5.
