The family dog is okay through the earthquake and is shown at the end to have not suffered due to the volcano. He’s a safe boy. :)

In the vet triage area scene, many different types of animals are shown being treated. None shown dead or dying.
Horse, dog, pig, snake. There are assorted animal noises including barking and meowing that are a bit distressing, but the scene is over fairly quickly.

There's gore, but I don't think it's excessive. Mostly it contributes to the story. It isn't on screen unnecessarily.

No, but a boy of about 5 is lost in the chaos and is in serious danger. He actually doesn't seem all that afraid or sad, and he makes it through unharmed. Anyway, seeing a child that looks abandoned might be triggering.

Only a super brief clip - a tv news shot showing the 'forgotten victims' (pets) being tended to by the vets; first showing a dog with a bandaged head (looking more embarassed than hurt!) then a python being bandaged. Nothing scary or intimidating about it, and only on screen (on a tv screen within the movie) for a few seconds.

A very large metal object lands on a man's leg, covering the leg up to the top of his thigh. It isn't graphic, but there's no doubt that the leg breaks (or is shattered). He doesn't get free, and we don't see him afterwards. I think the sound of the object falling is so loud that we don't hear the bone(s) break.

Not exactly, but we see close-ups of shoe soles melting on super hot surfaces while people are walking the shoes. Apart from that, at least one person yells/screams that their feet are burning or close to burning.

Someone falls into lava. She doesn't fall far, and the lava is what kills her, but she does fall and die. Very dramatic and tragic scene. We see her struggling to hold onto the edge she's hanging from, and somebody else trying to pull her up, but then she falls, screaming - we see it from above.

We see a man with a steam burn covering one half of his face. We see it clearly for a few moments, but I actually didn't notice his eye. I¨m answering yes to write the comment; I'm sorry I can't say for sure if we see a damaged eye.

Yes. A fireman climbs into a firetruck to save another fireman who's injured and stuck; the lava reaches the truck before either of them gets out, and the both burn. Also, a man jumps into shin-deep lava to get close enough to its edge to throw the unconscious man he's carrying to safety (he succeeds). We see him burn/melt into the lava, in the end only his hand showing. He knew that there was no way that both of them could make it - only if he had left the other man to die, thus making himself lighter, could (MIGHT) he have been able to jump all the way across the lava. In another scene, a father sprints towards his teen daughter and a toddler in a desperate attempt to get them out of the way of a falling building. He knows that it may cost him his life, and that he may not even manage to save the kids, but he does it anyway. All three emerge from the rubble unharmed after several moments.

Not that I noticed. Two of the main characters are a man and his daughter; they both make it through unharmed against all odds (several near-misses in the face of extreme danger). There are several scenes along the way in which the daughter has all the reason in the world to fear that her dad will die horribly, and we see her desperately crying and resisting when she's forced to leave a place while he stays. That was a bit hard to watch. But, again, they're both fine in the end. --- Side note: There are no feeble or sick old people in the movie.

It can be assumed that lots of toys are destroyed with the houses. No close ups of them. A child holds a stuffed animal. A basketball is shown rolling down the street.

One big explosion startled me so much that I jumped and cried out, but I don't know if it's technically a jumpscare. I don't have the time stamp, so my advice is to expect big explosions at any given time.

It's more fireman/city works propaganda than copaganda. Police are shown, mostly just following orders to try and save people. Sometimes in a negative light. Firemen are shown constantly in heroics, including self sacrifice.
A man (black) who'd been harassed and handcuffed by a police officer is shown then working alongside the cop to help the barricade. They treat the cop as a hero for sending help to the houses burning down after the barricade is done.
