*The* dog doesn't die, nor do any characters we have grown to care about, but one or two background dogs are shown to have died off-screen. The movie is meant to be satisfying overall to anyone who cares about dogs, as the dogs are given a happy ending.

No, but there is talk of dogs being experimented on and harmful drug use on the part of the people experimenting on the dogs. It is not made explicit but it is in the realm of possibility.

Hard to say. The goriest it gets in my opinion is a surgical scene fairly close to the end of the movie, which is in semi-graphic detail (despite being animated).

Some of the dogs are described as having mental/ behavioral health symptoms affiliated with the main diseases, and many of the characters are hopeless and show signs of suicidal ideation.
No specific mental illnesses are mentioned though.

There isn't direct ridicule for characters crying, and male characters actually cry frequently in the film, but in an opening scene, one of the main characters has a speech chastising the other dogs for hopeless feelings they're expressing.

During the traditional sushi preparation scene, done by a master chef, where a live fish and crab are gutted and prepared. It's extremely amusingdisheartening based on your stand, but overall an extreme scene.
Also, a very graphic kidney transplantation scene with blood splatter and breathing" flesh. This is a claymation and it's done in a professional way, looking like a documentary recording from a distance and a fixed view, rather than exploitation scene, but it's quite graphic too.
