Are you sure it's a brown recluse ? Caught early enough ice would have helped. Heavy antibiotics is the only way to treat it . Don't lance it ! I would soak the leg in a cold hydrogen peroxide soak . It might help .The problem is the age and the amount of of the tissue in then area of the bite . The actual amount of muscle in this area is small and has allowed the venom to move quickly through it . I think you have to make a choice here . I'm not sure a vet could help this and if one can it will be expensive.[GALLERY=][GALLERY=][/GALLERY][/GALLERY]
Born on Easter 2017. Only one out of chicks with this issue. .
The venom paralyzes the tissue and starts the decomposition process. it's amazing that such a small creature wields such deadly power . In humans the bite is extremely painful . The damage isolated to a small area but if untreated it can spread . I met a man that lost his leg to a spider bite .
Did he suggest a coarse of treatment? I never have much luck treating anything chicken . Seems like they all end up the same . I hope your luck is better than mine .I work at a 24 he animal emergency clinic. They, of course don't see poultry, but I had the night vet look at him, and he is pretty sure brown recluse bite. .
