Exclamation I'd like to know why he had to die

My guinea pig Speedy had just turned 5, and it wasn't long before he started avoiding his dry food. He only ate salad, and nibbled on some fruits. His hay seemed untouched too. Then I noticed his water bottle was still full, and lastly he wasn't urinating or pooping. I took him to the vet, she said he was a bit dehydrated, and gave him some fluids under the skin. That was all, and we went home again. I'm thinking his digestive system just gave up on him. Is this common in guinea pigs? Or what do you think went wrong? o_O
