And yes, they had medical supplies, I believe. They were saving them for Lori's birth. They were also in a prison and knew there was an infirmary (with supplies) somewhere nearby. If it was as simple as an infection (even a super infection), I think they'd bet on finding some antibiotics and cleaning the wound rather than, literally, cutting off his leg to spite his face.

Edit: I've also found out while researching this, that recent research shows that komodo dragons actually are VENOMOUS, not just toxic due to bacteria.

The infirmary was raided before they got there.
