    Is my guinea pig dying?

    I have a 3 and a half year old boar. Noticed that he is off his food including salad and hay. His eyes are dull and sunken & he is hunched in appearance. He has lost weight too. Poop seems looser. Just doesn't look happy. Please advise so I can make him comfy.

Because of his situation I decided it would be better for him to die peacefully at home instead of being euthanized at the vets. I feel horrible for him, and his cage mate, Boomer. But...
