  When Podiatrist Dr. Amannda Richline was thinking of ways to thank her patients, a community-wide open house seemed like the  perfect idea. “Of course, we can’t forget the animals,” Richline said, excitedly. As her patients all know, the foot doctor is not only passionate about taking care of  people, but is an avid animal rescuer as well. This open house is a great chance to interact with some of her furry and feathered friends, visit the office, meet the staff, and get some free stuff as well! Therapy dogs will be there, along with the lucky parrots who live in Sy’s Piece of Heaven, Dr. Richline’s  parrot sanctuary. The fun-filled festivi-ties at her Belvidere office will start Satur-day, November 1st from 9am to 2pm The open house will feature the doctor’s rescued cow, Winchester, and his friend, Daisy, at 11am to 1pm. “It’s by popular demand! My patients always ask about him,” Richline said. A special store repre-sentative will also be on-hand from 11am to 1pm to give pointers on how to find the right fitting footwear, when to replace running shoes, and more helpful foot tips. “I love this town and wanted to show it!” Richline said. Free foot exams will be held throughout the day, as well as a candy buy  back—you can trade in your Halloween candy for $1 a pound. The latest fashions from Dr. Richline’s Shoe World will be on display, and free NuFoot yoga socks will be given with every  purchase. There will also be a buy one get one free selection. All those who come to the open house will receive a free T-shirt and goody bag, as well as complimentary refresh-ments and food includ-ing hot dogs, cupcakes, and popcorn. Signing the email list will get you a $10 gift certifi-cate. If you “like” themon Facebook, they’ll bump the certificate up to $15. Dr. Richline is a  board-certified podia-trist who’s been serving the Belvidere commu-nity with quality care for over 16 years. Besides her dedication to  patients, she has devotedmuch of her life to help-ing those in need-animals and people alike. For more information,see Dr. Richline’s ad on page 11.Louis Melchor, princi- pal of North Warren Regional High School, announced that Anna C. Kellaher and Fiona C. Schicho have been named Commended Students in the 2015  National Merit Scholar-ship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) will be presented to these talented seniors. About 34,000 Com-mended Students throughout the nation are  being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Anna and Fiona placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2015 competition by taking the 2013 Prelimi-nary SAT/ National Merit Scholarship Quali-fying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).“The young women  being named Com-mended Students have demonstrated outstand-ing potential for... success,” said a spokes- person for NMSC. “These students repre-sent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advance-ment of educational excellence... We hope that this recognition will help broaden their oppor-tunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of success.”  October is National Breast Cancer Aware-ness Month. Fight  breast cancer by creat-ing a plan that detects the disease in its early stages at www.national  breastcancer.org. During October the Warren County Library, located at 2 Shotwell Drive in Belvidere, will hold October Spooktacular , a month-long celebra-tion of Halloween. Kids can sign up for a reading  program beginning October 1st and turn in their log at the end of the month to receive a prize.

Blairstown Township will be holding a town-wide cleanup on Octo-ber 24th and 25th.  As in past years, a voucher system will be used. Each property owner is entitled to two vouchers, which allow residents to  bring items to the Warren County Landfill in Oxford. Only Blair-stown property owners are entitled to receive these vouchers. Property owners may pick up their vouchers begin-ning October 14th at the municipal building from 8am to 4pm, Monday through Friday. Property owners in possession of valid handicapped park-ing permits may call the municipal garage in advance at 908-362-8119 to arrange for  pick-up. On November 15th, Blairstown Township will be holding a public land clean up day.  Blairstown volunteer groups, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts. Church groups, etc. can earn money, as well as help out their community. Each group of six (one must be an adult) can earn $200 or more depending on the number of volunteer groups.

With cooler weather and reduced daylight, nature is signaling it is time for our migrant raptors and other birds to go south. Set atop the Kittatinny Ridge on the Appala-chian Trail, the outstanding view will  provide the perfect  backdrop for a day to discover these amazing  birds with Mike Ander-son, Sanctuary Director of New Jersey Audubon’s Scherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanc-tuary in Bernardsville.On this field trip, you will discover a variety of migrating raptors such as Cooper’s, Sharp-shinned, Red-tailed and Red-shouldered Hawks as they continue their fall migration. Not only are these birds a beauti-ful sight to behold, they are important indicators of environmental health. New Jersey Audubon has a special-use permit from Yards Creek Pumped Storage Facil-ity, which provides the shortest access to the ridge. The one-hour long hike up is steep, rocky, and wet in places, so participants must dress for the weather and wear suitable shoes for hiking this terrain. There is a limit of 20  people and 10 cars and everyone will enter and leave the facility together as a group. Registration is required  by October 25th. Please call 908-766-5787 to register. Further infor-mation will provided upon registration. New Jersey Audubon’s Scherman HoffmanWildlife Sanctuary  provides educational  programs throughout theyear for adults and children.

Veterinary technicians are an important part of the medical support team at our hospital. We currently have five technicians on staff here at Blairstown Animal Hospital. They perform a wide variety of func-tions that help make the veterinarians’ jobs easier and improve the quality of care for the  patients. They are in charge of placing intra-venous catheters,  performing anesthesia and dental cleanings, taking radiographs (X-rays), drawing blood and running bloodwork, evaluating cytology slides (looking under the microscope at samples), dispensing medications and monitoring our surgical and medical  patients, to just name some of their responsi- bilities. As you can see, they act as nurses, dental hygienists, radiology and pharmacy techni-cians, and phlebotomists all at once. Our technicians have all attended a two-year  program in a recognized veterinary technician school. It is a rigorous curriculum that includes courses in anatomy,  pharmacology, anesthe-sia, microbiology, emergency/ critical care, radiology and many others. Their training involves not only dogs and cats, but farm animals as well and they get plenty of hands-on experience. That all comes in handy when starting work at our busy  practice. Having a capable technician means that the veterinar-ian can bring a pet into the hospital and hand over the diagnostic and treatment plan to her, knowing that shortly, the tests will be run and the treatments will be underway.Here is an example of a typical surgical case and the technician’s role. Patients for surgery arrive in the morning. The doctors have rounds to discuss the cases for the day and to outline the details of the proce-dures. Many pets need to have bloodwork  before surgery. The  blood is drawn and run  by the technician so it is ready to be reviewed by the surgeon. They also will run an EKG which is sent remotely to a cardiologist for interpre-tation. Once the sched-ule is set, the first pet is given a sedative. The dose is calculated and administered by the technician. When the  patient is comfortable and relaxed, he is  brought into our treat-ment area and prepped  by the technician and an assistant. This involves giving an injection to have him sleeping deeply enough for an endotracheal tube to be inserted. Gas anesthesia is administered, the surgical site is clipped and given the first scrub. Pre-surgical pain medi-cations are given and the  pet is then taken into the surgical suite where he is given the final scrub while the surgeon gets scrubbed and gloved. During this time, moni-tors are hooked up which will record respi-ration, heart rate, body temperature, blood  pressure, oxygen satura-tion and CO2 levels. After surgery, the technician takes the pet  back into the recovery area, gives post-surgical  pain medication, and continues monitoring until he is awake. If there are any complica-tions, she is then able to alert the doctor right away. As you can see, the technicians are a vital part of the surgical team. When I asked our technicians what their favorite classes were in school, I got a variety of answers, but the one at the top of each one’s list was the nursing care classes. That exempli-fies the devotion they have in giving aid to the  pets in their care. If you would like to learn more about what veterinary technicians do, visit the National Association of Veteri-nary Technicians in America’s website at www.navta.net. And next time you visit us, remember to thank our technicians for all the great care they adminis-ter to your pets.  Blairstown Senior Bus Trip : Nov. 20th.
