Bichons are pink skinned dogs, can lead to skin issues. The color change could be due to chronic intolerance etc. When we first got the bichon years ago, he was so matted that the groomer had to take the fleece off to the skin - sheared him like a sheep. He was literally pink, looked like a little piglet.
As for taste of the wild too strong, I don't know what strong means - but best quality doesn't necessarily equate to best for your dog. Some foods are high in protein and carbs, usually meant for more energetic go go go breeds. Many hunting dogs get put on a higher carb diet for field trials.
Throughout your 3 week food trial, try to keep a daily log of when the dog eats and poops - and if you can, what the poop looks like, hard/soft/runny. Take note of any positives or negatives in the dog - if any appear. If it is a food intolerance, you should notice some difference by the end of 3 weeks.
