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.
I think everyone except Lprechaun agrees that the bites kill people. He said they amputated his leg to stop his bleeding.
