I didn't see the amputation as a means to stop the bleeding. Anyone that is bitten isn't killed by the virus they are killed by the fever that follows a bite from a walker.

Just like a bite from a human, I am assuming that there are all kinds of bacteria in a walkers mouth. When bitten (much like human bites), it causes infection, which causes a fever.

They cut off the source of infection and fever to keep Hershel alive. Then tied him up in the event he died from blood loss and turned.
