Not the main dog, but there are multiple dogs that still are killed throughout the book. Sometimes by other dogs, and once, several dogs fall through ice and drown.

A rabbit is hunted and killed by a group of dogs. There might be some others, that's all I can remember right now.

There is one part in which the main dog gets beaten with a stick. In another, one of his friends gets devoured by wolves, though I don't think this would count as abuse.

The canine protagonist is forced into a life in a dog fighting ring, the fights are pretty awful but well written. The author wrote this book to very intentionally villify the practice and it was instrumental in raising awareness to successfully get dog fights banned in the US and Canada.

Technically there is a part where frozen horse fur is bought from a dead horse

I don't think there's any cats mentioned.

Dogs are beaten, starved, mistreated, and worked almost to death throughout the book.

Technically, yes. Because the main character, who is a dog, is stolen from his home and sold.

No, but there is mention that dogs are starved by a man who treats them cruelly before selling them.

A woman does fall through ice and drown, but she's not stated to be pregnant.

no, but the last owner is killed by alaskan natives which can be considered stereotypical?? idk if thats the right word. but it sets in the "savage" stereotype that a lot of people use against natives.

This is kind of ambiguous. The dog goes free and gets to run around in the wild with a wolf pack, but it's heavily implied that his last owner, who actually took good care of him, was killed, so... do with that what you will.

Yes, actually. A dog is choked by a rope to get him to stop fighting.

There's several dog fights mentioned that go into rather graphic detail. A rabbit is hunted and killed. Humans beat dogs, and fight with each other.
