In the first season, episode three Eleven has a flashback from when she was in a laboratory, where she is asked to kill a cat in a cage with her powers. The cat is obviously scared and Eleven can't bring herself to hurt it.

SPOILERS:
the worst is the chimpanzee is shot during the longer flashback about halfway through the film. You can tell it’s coming because you hear sirens. You only see blood splatter on a sheer tablecloth and the chimp kind of quickly falls out of frame. It’s very quick and the chimp is reaching out it’s hand for a fist bump. It’s clearly a CG monkey so that’s good? Helped me get through it at least.

Now for the horses: no horses are shown being abused or tortured in any way (the worst is a horse is sucked up into a dust cloud but he’s not crying out- it’s very quick). In the very beginning after the hospital scene, the white horse is shown alive and well but there’s a key sticking out of its skin and some dried blood. But the horse is okay- it’s just showing hard objects fell from the sky.
The rest of the horses are shown at different points running, and making sounds that echo but It’s never explicit. One horse is shown being sucked into a dusty storm but it’s quick. This is at night maybe 40 mins in and you can tell it’s about to happen. You don’t see any horses explicitly die. Some horses appear to have been sucked up into the sky but we never see what happens to them. Don’t worry about Lucky- Lucky doesn’t die and is never injured. :)

The entire movie unfortunately is set up around animal abuse and mutilation in order to set up Rocket’s back story. It is very hard to watch and very gut wrenching, I do not recommend watching this if you are an animal person. I felt very sick and unsettled after watching this. Very depressing movie.

Thanks to so many of you who give good information. As we all know these animals are not really killed, but who likes to see that kind of suffering in an animal. Even if we don’t actually see the abuse. I’ve come to really really rely on this app for every single movie I am about to watch. And all the very cool people who feel like I do, I am so glad this app exists!

Meant to be comedic but a small dog is used as a weapon and is forcefully kicked through the air, it’s clear a prop dog is used in place of a real dog

Season 3 episode 3, the deep eats a live octopus. I’m not sure how graphic it was as I forwarded it myself but judging from others comments, definitely one to skip through. When homelander brings the silver platter out skip around 1 min 30 seconds (can’t say for sure as again I didn’t watch it but that’s how much I skipped when I saw the octopus and it was fine)

Multiple animals are killed or beaten. However it is not graphic, since it's in Minecraft, and some of the animal abuse/death is just due to the players accidentally misclicking.

EP2 9:53 to 10:00 if you want to skip the tadpoles in motor oil. It’s not graphic though.

+ EP2 14:50 to 15:50 if you want to skip the raccoon dissection.

Appa is treated horribly by several characters throughout an entire episode. He is stolen, tied up, sold, beaten, starved, threatened with flames, attacked by other animals. It's a very sad episode, and is hard to watch, and it doesn't really end happily.

Appa is reunited with Aang a few episodes later.

Obviously the bear on cocaine isn’t treated very nicely, and her cubs are hit. All of them turn out okay though. A dog is also left in a car but is ok.
