So for 10 days we have had a turkey in a sling who suffered a compound fracture, we have yet to take the splint off and see if the bone has successfully started fusing. However, her good leg has areas of amber and green on it, as well as some near her keel. Our biggest concern now is not the break in her left leg, but the discoloration in her right. I am worried it could be internal muscle necrosis, something similar to this here. http://www.merckmanuals.com/vet/poultry/myopathies/exertional_myopathy_in_poultry.html Now, the break occurred 12 days ago, she was hopping on her right leg when found and flapping wildly, we sutured the hole where her tibia was poking out and splinted the leg, two days later lying uncomfortably on her side (she did not shift much, the most moving she got was when we changed her paper) she started kicking the splint off, there was no way her bone could fuse if she behaved this way, so we created a sling and put her in it. At first I administered tylan 50 shots, I attempted to inject just under the skin and avoid the muscle, though it is not impossible the muscle was injected slightly. For eight days she has been on penicillin. We also had a fan heater pointed in her direction to keep her elevated feet warm, we checked to make sure she was not overheating, though I still don't want to rule out possibilities of overheating. So I'm thinking the discoloration could be many things. It could be torn muscles from her hopping wildly on that leg when the break occurred. The tylan 50 may have caused muscle damage. The skin was overheated and damaged (not sure what color a turkey's skin turn if this were the case). Or, what has really got me worried, it may be muscle death from her lying on that side for two days after overexertion, similar to what I read from the link above. Now, worst case scenario and it is muscle death, does anyone know what will happen? I know that muscle tissue would not regrow, but would it have to turn to gangrene? Can the dead muscle tissue be dissolved by the body? In this picture you can see the green discoloration. The yellow encrusted stuff you see is just dried iodine.
