English Bulldog Bad Breath

Why, all of a sudden, does my EB have the worst breath?

He is 4y old, his breath stinks, it had never been that way before and we have not changed his diet.


I checked his mouth, teeth, and gums but they look ok. We have not changed is food.


Should I have his teeth clean? Will changing the diet help, and should I start him on those hard dental bones?


Thanks Jay
