Well, somehow I'm magic! I have just started my new job as the Reptiles Manager in another petstore(after leaving my old one). All the animals were in really bad shape when I first started,but my first day I changed everyones cage completely,disinfected their cages,and gave them the things they needed. After 2 weeks I noticed one of my two baby albino pacman frog had broken blood vessels on his hind legs. My first ever redleg case. I also paniced,and ran for a sulfa block. Then my mentor(the manager of the reptiles dept in the store for about 10 years) came in and I told him the story. He directed my to Nayacin. I broke a capsule and put it in the water the baby was soaking in. Did this for 2 days,gave him fresh water,and fresh medication. After 3 days,baby was absolutely fine again, hopping,burrowing and even eating. Is this unusual? I always thought the signs of the actual red leg were indicators it was too late. Has anyone else had success treating red leg?What did you use?

That's a heart warming story! I felt the same way when I noticed wounds on my salamander's tail, but he has since not died and seems to be getting better. Usually red leg means it's too late, but then again, most people don't take the time to treat it. So, I guess it is unusual to make a recovery from it.
