A dog is not a mouse. There is another section for other animals, besides dogs, cats, and horses.

At the very start of the film, we see a lab rat being placed in a large jar with a cotton swab. When we see the rat again, it is deceased. Be advised that an actual dead rat was acquired from a taxidermist for use in filming. It is not a CG animal.

This may depend on your definition; lab testing with rats is depicted at the start of the film.

I am not aware of a spider being depicted. If I'm wrong, maybe someone else could provide context?

Gigantic (relatively) CG butterflies and dragonfly shown briefly during the Norway segment. The female protagonist has a penchant for butterflies and during a scene in her apartment, the male protagonist points out that many of her belongings depict butterflies.

We see a lab rat injected with an experimental serum at the start of the film. Later on, the male protagonist injects his ailing mother with medication. Patients preparing to undergo the downsizing procedure are hooked up to IV's and given anaesthetics and downsizing serum intravenously. The male protagonist attends a party where people are drinking and taking recreational drugs. He accepts a pill, which is transferred to him via French kiss and which turns out to be a hallucinogenic. We also see him take a hit of marijuana. He eventually blacks out and awakens on the floor the next morning. The female protagonist regularly takes expired prescription medications from her clients. We see the protagonists select one of these to treat a woman who is dying of cancer. Because the medication is expired, they give her twice the initially suggested dosage. The female protagonist later states that this dosage may have been too high and caused the woman's death.

The male protagonist attends a party where people are drinking and taking recreational drugs. Drunkenness is not emphasized, but the host seems to be hungover in the morning. Use your discretion.

Prior to undergoing the downsizing procedure, patients' heads are shaved with electric razors, including their eyebrows. We see a number of people having their heads shaved and, after being put to sleep with IV drips, the nurses proceed to remove the patients' hospital gowns and shave their body hair, as well.

It may be worth noting that the female protagonist tells of how someone she knew died during the downsizing procedure because his dental fillings weren't removed. She explicitly states that his head effectively exploded.

One of main characters has an amputation below the knee because of a severe leg infection. The amputation isn't shown.

Technically, yes. The downsizing procedure only works on organic tissue, so all patients are shown in dentist chairs, having their fillings removed. This includes a close-up of fillings and false teeth being discarded into a surgical tray. The patients are unconscious for this. Likewise, we see them receiving new fillings after being downsized.

No one is kidnapped during the film, but the female protagonist is the lone survivor of a group who were abducted and forcibly downsized by their government, then shipped overseas in a television box.

We see the male protagonist disrobe and step into a shower, but the camera immediately pans away.

Shortly after accepting an unnamed hallucinogenic drug, the male protagonist regrets his decision and attempts to self-induce vomiting. We see him repeatedly stick his finger down his throat, gag, and spit into a dirty toilet, but he doesn't manage to make himself throw up.

The main character tries to make himself vomit after ingesting drugs. He doesn't actually vomit, but he makes vomit-sounds and it was triggering for me, so.

The female protagonist tells the male protagonist that a woman she is caring for has stomach cancer and will soon die. He speaks with the woman in Spanish and helps decide which pain medicine to give her. When we revisit the female protagonist's apartment, the woman is gone and she informs the male protagonist that she died and implies that it may actually have been because they gave her too high a dosage of painkillers.

We see a deceased lab rat get injected with an experimental serum at the start of the film. We also see the male protagonist preparing to inject his mother with medication. Later on, we see a close-up of the full process of the male protagonist being hooked up to an IV and an anaesthetic and the downsizing serum being injected into the IV stream.

The facility at which the downsizing procedure is performed resembles a hospital. Depiction of gurneys, hospital beds, IV's, needles/syringes/injections, hospital gowns, and nurses.

Body dysmorphia involves obsessive focus on a physical flaw, which may be minor or imagined. The male protagonist expresses regret over downsizing because it led to his divorce. This is not body dysmorphia.

A fictional minority, the miniaturized people, are regarded by one person as unworthy of having voting rights.

A man jokes that his wife wants him to downsize in order to lose weight. A nurse/worker at the downsizing facility remarks that there are "a lot of fatties" in the incoming group of patients.

A derogatory term for intersex people is used.

Not a specific person, but while talking about another character, someone says “he has sex with men, women, hermaphrodites” which is an outdated term.

French kissing, an implied sex scene, and some explicit dialogue regarding sex. There is also some nudity, including full-frontal male and female nudity.

Very minimal blood. The female lead was the lone survivor of a group who were abducted and forcibly downsized by their government, then shipped overseas in a television box. We briefly see the box on a TV news report. Its lower corner is stained brownish-red and contains a number of puncture holes. The details of how this happened are not elaborated upon.
