There are multiple occasions where you have to fight dogs and kill them, but they do not appear in cutscenes. The dogs you have to kill look very much like your dog companion from "Dragon Age: Origins", so it can be distressing.

The player character has a war hound that can accompany the party in combat. During Act 1, the protagonist's uncle is also verbally abusive towards the dog and it is somewhat implied that he is neglectful towards it when the protagonist is not home.

You can choose not to kill dragons, but there are many instances of baby dragons and two fully grown dragons that must be killed for you to do major side quests.

The characters mentions that he was forced to give away his cat. The cat did not die and was unharmed.

Many mentions, but rarely anything on screen. Fenris for one, many many mage children mentioned for another. The Templar character Ser Alrik is seen threatening a young girl to (essentially) lobotomize and abuse her as he has been doing to others throughout the game.

No drug use is shown, but a Templar character, Samson, is shown as being a serious lyrium addict and deals with you mainly to get more lyrium.

There are several references to templars being addicted to lyrium, including a minor character who is going through withdrawal. There are also some minor characters who may be implied to be alcoholic.

If you exiled Alistair in the previous game, he is shown in the bar as a wandering alcoholic.

Blood magic usually involves cutting, and Merrill, one of the companions, is a blood mage.

A character potentially commits suicide by fire magic in the quest "Shepherding Wolves". Mages, both allied and enemy, may use fire spells in combat, though it's possible to limit this by not choosing or disabling fire spells for your party. Other enemies include fire-breathing dragons and fiery rage demons, who may knock out your party members. There are also a few instances where you may come across burned corpses, and a major antagonist is killed in a way reminiscent of burning alive, but no actual fire is involved. Finally, the major religion in the games is centered around a martyr who was burned on a pyre, and some text and dialogue references this.

In addition to references to children dying, one of the player character's younger siblings, who is about 18-19 years old, dies early in the story. The other can die depending on player choices.

Several characters close to the player can be kidnapped across various quests, potentially including their mother, their brother/sister or their love interest

You can attempt to romance more than one person, but generally once you have progressed far enough with one relationship, you are unable to romance anyone else.

A character's mother is killed and reanimated for use in a ritual. Not extremely gory but the scene is rather upsetting due to the nature of her death/body.

The DLC questline 'Legacy' heavily features the ghost of your father, though it is easy to see it as ghosts of memories or a sort of magic-based diary that shows a ghostly projection of him. Additionally, the 'Haunted' companion questline for Varric in act 3 references ghosts, and has some ghost-like moments.

No jumpscares, but a major quest involves objects suddenly moving, scaring the party

One of your companions works as a healer for the poor, and when you first meet him, he is using magic to heal a child that is injured. There is no gore or trauma shown, and it is a brief scene.

Anders (who has bipolar disorder) has a few anxiety attacks in the main game and in Legacy DLC. Merrill also has a few scenes where she is very anxious.

The characters travel through narrow caves and corridors, but are never in danger of being trapped. The main setting (Kirkwall) is kind of a claustrophobic place, with high walls, narrow streets, and many underground passages and areas without much natural light.

There is a quest that can end with a character intentionally burning himself to death after a long discussion about it with the player character. The only way to avoid this is to hand him over to be executed.

Some of the dialogue about Sandal, who is autistic-coded, is kind of ableist. Characters can also be very hurtful towards Anders (who has bipolar disorder and is severely depressed by the end of the game) and Merrill (who may be mentally ill, though it's not specified) in a way that borders on ableism.

Elves are heavily Jewish-coded and experience frequent prejudice and hatespeech that very closely mirrors antisemetism

There is some casual misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, and fantasy racism. Aveline slut-shames Isabela often, Gamlen makes homophobic and/or misogynistic comments about Hawke's love interest, and there are a few comments about characters of colour (Fenris in particular) that cross the line into racism.

The player character's family's appearance matches your choices in character creation. If you make Hawke Black, their family members will also be Black, and their brother or sister is the first character to die.

Karl. Bi party member Anders' former lover. Also -HEAVY SPOILERS- Anders himself, depending on player character choice near the end of the game.

There is no explicit sexual content, but there is plenty of innuendo and some fade-to-black sex scenes. There's also at least one scene (in The Exiled Prince DLC) where the party interrupts a sexual encounter between NPCs, but the characters are in underwear.

You can encounter many homeless people throughout the game, especially in the area labeled “Darktown” which you have to go to often to progress the main story.

You end the game with your entire family dead including your father, mother and one (possibly two) siblings, a war just started over the horrific oppression you've witnessed all game, and the PC fleeing their home -again- and on the run / known as a dangerous criminal or potential war hero. The game could alternatively be titled How Hawke's life just kept getting worse: The Game". ABSOLUTELY not a happy ending.

Isabela makes a few references to shipwrecks and sailors dying at sea. It's all off-screen.
