How do you know when a guinea pig is going to die?

You know when a guinea pig is going to die when his behavior dramatically changes from before. If the guinea pig stops drinking he will eventually die from dehydration. It is completely normal for guinea pigs to eat continuously throughout the day, and something is definitely wrong if he stops eating. A guinea pigs' body will be light and limp with no energy. If the guinea pigs' eyes are not bright or clear and starts to recede, then the guinea pig is slowly dying. He will give the most painful screeches as he struggles to breathe. The guinea pig is only minutes from dying when lies down and breathes with his entire front teeth showing. It will be too late when his breathing comes to an end and his heart finally stops.
