Gob accidentally killing doves is a bit of a running gag throughout the show. The actual deaths are never shown, but sometimes the dove's (fake) dead body is shown.

A turtle is placed into a box with marijuana and eventually dies (the character thinks the marijuana is grass for the turtle)

a character has scans on his head from hair implants and he has to shave for a magic trick. The act is not shown but it cuts away before anything can be shown. He screams. (Made for comedy)

Gob bites into an apple and his tooth chips and he speaks with a whistle (made for laughs) This happens again when he gets hit with a baseball

Cheating is frequent and treated a bit casually and comedically throughout, but it's also made clear the characters doing it are not good people. Cheating is very touchy for me, and I'm able to tolerate it.

George Michael's mom is dead, though her death is never shown, and in the later seasons the death of Lucille's mom is kind of shown.

For those with emetophobia, I have it and I can handle it. It just looks like regular spit and it barely shows at all. It’s the episode titled Ready, Aim, Marry Me

While it isn't explicitly shown, George Michael's mom dies of ovarian cancer before the events of the show.

Lindsay is repeatedly led to believe that she is overweight by Lucille.

Lindsay is implied to have an eating disorder throughout the seasons due to Lucille's consistent comments about her weight.

Lucille attempts to convince Michael that a car crash was his fault, which he believes because he has memory loss from it. She also hits him on the head with things when he starts to figure out that she's lying, to make sure that he doesn't remember.

the show is filmed as a mockumentary so it looks as if someone’s recording it without a stand/tripod to give it that “live documentary” style look

Yes, if you're triggered by incestuous relationships I definitely wouldn't recommend this show. George Michael fake dates, and then eventually real dates, his cousin Maeby throughout the course of the show. It starts off as a prank relationship to bother their parents and turns into something more.

In the first season, George Sr. has a vision in the form of a Star of David, which he interprets as a sign from God. However, he’s not particularly interested in studying, to the annoyance of those around him. He plays on whatever Jewish thing he can think of, but none of them are harmful stereotypes. Mostly just getting out of conversations or duties by claiming it’s a holiday, or “the Sabbath”, even in the middle of the week. No anti-semitism, just that George Sr. is supposed to be lazy and inattentive at everything he does.

In s2e5 (Sad Sack), Lindsay meets Steve Holt, and mistakes his general politeness for romantic interest. Maeby tries to drive a wedge between the two by telling Steve that Lindsay is male-to-female transgender (and uses the t-slur once when describing her plan after the fact to George Michael). However, this just makes Steve extra polite and complimentary to Lindsay. At the end of the episode, Maeby buys Lindsay a shirt that says S*****e claiming it’s a fashion brand pronounced she-MAL-ee.

The entire character of Rita from season 3 is a joke at the expense of mentally disabled people. Throughout her first few episodes, her mannerisms are intentionally represented in a way meant to convince the audience that she's a secret agent, although it's fairly obvious from the start what her "big twist" is, being that she was disabled the whole time. Various ableist hints at her disability include her attending a preschool called "Slowbrooke", laughing loudly, wearing mismatched clothes, being called stupid by her uncle and the narrator, eating improperly, playing with dirt, frequent mentions that she doesn't "seem" disabled because she's attractive, and "r*t*rd" and "r*t*rded" are used multiple times after her "reveal". She's featured quite heavily between episodes 2-6 of season 3, so unfortunately if you want to avoid all the ableism, skipping these episodes might be necessary.

The Bluth family lawyer, Barry Zuckerkorn, repeatedly tries to peddle disparaging remarks about “homos”, disguised as ordinary humorous banter.

The treatment that Michael, Gob, Lindsay, and Buster experienced as children could be counted as abusive or at least neglectful. Specifically Buster, who is put on a leash against his will due to overprotective parenting on Lucille and George Sr.'s part.

Yes but nothing is shown and it’s for a comedic effect
