A child does go missing under parental supervision, but it was not purposeful abandonment.

One of the major sources of horror in this book is the abuse the main character suffers at the hands of his own Mother.

Same as the other comment, but there is a scene where a dog fights another dog to save a human. Not in the traditional dog fight sense

Technically no, but a dog the character forms a connection with dies emotionally and many lab animals die. Main character is also a vet and talks about having to put down peoples pets in the past

While not explicitly called an eating disorder, the mother's behavior lines up pretty well with binge eating disorder. This character is portrayed as a monster, especially in relation to her increasing size. Some of the prose is extremely derogatory towards people in larger bodies.

A mother rapes one of her sons on at least one occasion. She's also described crawling into the other son's bed. Throughout the story in general, sexual abuse between the mother and her sons is implied and later made explicit in one flashback scene
