Is it normal for guinea pigs to have a heart attack?

My guinea pig died yesterday of a heart attack but the problem is that i don't know why. He was very fat but not too fat so he did not "explode" and he would run around every time you touch him. He was very healthy. He wasn't old at all he was really young. There wasn't any loud noises yesterday. My family was watching the movie but he died when the movie was over. How is it possible for him to have a heart attack and just die?

I had a hamster die from a heart attack once. I was holding him and he just started convulsing. Poor thing. It happens kiddo. I'm sorry for your loss. call a vet and ask questions. it might help you feel better. but these things just happen sometimes.

Aw gosh, i never knew a guinea pig could have a heart attack!! And i considered myself an expert too... I have a 2 year old guinea pig. Maybe the movie had a loud bang or something that shocked the poor piggie.
