my puppy has both puppy teeth and permanent teeth!

I have an 8-month old chihuahua female who has full sets of both puppy and permanent teeth in her tiny little mouth - should I take her to the vet to ask about having puppy teeth removed, or just wait until they fall out on their own? - she's chewing like crazy, so I think her teeth must be hurting - but she's still eating OK - (first time poster here, so thanks for your help!)

sounds good - I definitely would want her under anesthesia to remove her teeth - she's only at 2.4 lbs so I'm hoping she hits the 3 lb mark before I have her spayed - she's so little, I'm worried about any surgery right now...

I would consult your vet and get her spayed now. She is 8 months old and will be coming into heat soon and it's best to get it done before that happens.
