Hi Alyssa,
It might be worthwhile to check if her ovaries are painful- she can be quite sensitive in those areas, even if you lightly apply pressure. This can explain crookedness/ soreness/ agitation. A vet can advise you on products for this. There are stronger products like regumate but also more subtler calming ones too
