There are no animals in this movie other than the dogs.

One of the dogs hadn't been fully assimilated by the Thing, as the thing was torched before it could assimilate that one too, and despite being conscious and 'alive' the poor doggo was heavily dissolved by acid due to the attempted assimilation.

An alien at one point does assume a very disturbing spider-like form.

A seizure is not the same as a heart attack.

It is the only way to “kill” a thing, plus several people infected by it are burned

Except the chess computer, who is in MacReady's words a "cheating b***h"

We're not made aware of any of these men's families, so we don't know if any of them are parents.

Not by an evil spirit, but they do get taken over by the Thing. Sometimes it's able to completely take over someone and mimic them so that everyone thinks they're still human.

The blood is not gathered by syringe, but by cutting their thumbs with a knife. A syringe is shown when tranquillising a dog.

Well, there's a few autopsy scenes. That might make people uncomfortable. This movie has a lot of gore and body horror, it's pretty gross.

This is a tough one, but no, the thing assuming other people’s form by consuming them and changing shape is not body dysmorphia.

One black man does die, off screen, the other is one of the two characters left at the end.
