Default Chopping up rmbs?

I've fed raw off and on for years, but to dogs 15lbs and over, so it looks a bit different for me for these tinies. Cookie is 4 lbs. I've had her on innova lower fat canned to get some weight on her and its working nicely, but I feel like the grrls do the best on a raw diet with veggies and extras.

I do give rmbs for teeth twice weekly, however it is a LOT of work for Cookie, and I have to hold onto the other end of the rmb for her. She has four carnassials and four canines left from when her previous owner had her.

I chopped one of her Cornish hens up the other day with a cleaver. Would that be reasonable to do for a daily fare, and then add in veggies, herbs, eggs, etc (it would vary).
I also need to keep a close eye on her weight as she doesn't need extra weight with just three legs under her
What do you think. Chop? I do have a grinder, if I can find it after our last move lol.

Do you mean to add the cornish hen/veg to her regular food, or just feed the cornish hen with the veg, eggs etc?
It would be far too limited a diet on its own. A raw diet needs to be as varied as possible and should be based on red meats.

That's the first time I've ever heard that about red meats being the basis of a raw diet. Do you have a source for that? Just curious.

I rotate meats, veggies, etc over time typically. And yes i meant as a food it's own.
