Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I'm sorry to hear that your Shih Tzu is ill tonight. What are you seeing her do that makes you think she's had a stroke? Has she ever done anything like this before or is she currently being treated by the vet for any health issues?

Thanks and I'll await your reply
