Maybe an upset stomach? Food-y smell

We picked up our puppy yesterday and he is home now! Now that we have met him we have a couple of good contenders for names. He is incredibly sweet. I canít wait to post pictures!

Iím not sure if this is a grooming or diet question. The recommendation from the breeder was to mix a spoonful of wet canned food into the puppy kibble and add a little water to soften it. The food heís been eating isnít easily available to me so I was given some so that we can mix it with what I planned to switch him to, which is Merrick. We didnít feed him in the car, but about 5 hours into the trip I noticed he started to smell distinctly of dog food. I assumed it was upset stomach from the car ride, but since we have been home and fed him last night and this morning he smells even worse. He smelled amazing when we picked him up, a little like bath but also like nothing.

Is this upset stomach, and if so is there something I can do? Is it the food? It seems like if it was the food he would have smelled like it when we picked him up. But it did get worse after he ate, and Iím mixing the old kibble with the new Merrick puppy plate. Maybe Iím supposed to clean his face with something special? Or give him a breath type treat? I think he had his bath after he ate yesterday morning, right before we picked him up, so maybe whatever they brushed his teeth with worked really well?
