Not in the TV show. The other comments about allusions to dogs dying is from the movie.

All fighting is against humans or monsters. A dog is shown to be capable of fighting and defending himself, but no actual fighting occurs and no harm comes to the dog.

Gambling addiction in S3E4. The need for vampires to drink blood can, as always, be considered an addiction as well.

The Duke is buried alive, as is Collin Robinson, but both times are played for laughs and they're fine. It's not played as claustrophobic or distressing.

A person is chained in a room in S1E1, very briefly shown. A few characters are restrained with the threat of painfully extracting their semen with some sort of device in S2E9. It doesn't actually happen though. An energy vampire kinda tortures people throughout the series by intentionally boring them with inane nonsense, many times until they pass out. The comments about the torture chamber and man with a spear are from the movie, not the TV series.

In s02e04, Guillermo hyperventilates. In a few episodes, some characters are hypnotized and begin to gag as if their breath is being held.

One of the characters turned a toddler into a vampire (mentioned, not shown) and later you see the toddler as a vampire. Also a vampire character accidentally scares his living descendant to death, although she is 94 at the time.

In Season 1 there are one-off gags about victims of the vampires alive in the basement and a room briefly shown with people trapped inside for the vampires to feed on. Neither of these things are mentioned or seen again after the bit. There is implied kidnapping of victims throughout, but it’s never elaborated on.

Various humans are briefly hypnotized by vampires, and told to do things like leave, ignore what they've seen, see things that aren't real, and forget things they've heard.

s02e03, near the end, Colin Robinson drains too much energy out of his "victim," causing him to lose control of his bladder.

None throughout the first four seasons. There is a very brief scene where a needle is shown, but it’s not used on anyone and is quickly moved on from.

A character is depicted having an anxiety attack multiple times and it's intensely realistic. Apparently no one here knows what an anxiety attack looks like.

a vampire character joins a cult and trys to eat human food rather than blood (despite human food causing vampires to be sick) which is arguably an eating disorder

If you count being in coffins but the characters don’t mind it.(SPOILERS for season 3 finale) Guillermo is trapped in a coffin in a box and as a human this is very distressing for him and will not be resolved until season 4 comes out I guess.

No, but in s03e04, the main three vampires go weeks without sleep and begin to openly question if life is worth living. Nandor is seen sitting atop of a building with suicidal implications.

The film is a a mockumentary and there is a fair amount of shaking. At one point there is a chase scene through the woods and the camera bounces around violently before falling to the ground.

Occasionally directed at Guillermo. Often walks the line of it not being specifically a "fat joke" as opposed to Guillermo dealing with a wash of stereotypical bullying in general by people around him. (Particularly in later seasons, this is heavily balanced by him generally kicking ass and being the most competent character on the show. Lampshaded in at least once scene directly where Nadja asks if he has a "little chubby girlfriend" and Guillermo asks why she would have to necessarily also be chubby.)

A character describes herself as having g*psy blood, seems to be Roma herself though so not so much hate speech as a reclaimed slur.

Three of the main vampires are LGBT+ (Like pretty much everyone in the show) and are technically dead but they are not killed in the show. There are queer characters who kind of fake their death or it turns out they aren’t really dead. (SPOILERS) In season 3 episode 9 Colin Robinson dies.

If you count romances between 700 year old vampires and fully adult humans, then sure there's a large age gap. But no, not in the way that this category intends to be interpreted.

Lazlo, one of the main characters, jokes and gloats about sex in almost every episode. He has a topiary garden with hedges designed to look like vaginas. In s01e09, a human and a vampire get it on and two bats also do. In s03e03, a human and a vampire have sex.

No overt incest but a characters does have a topiary with bushes shaped like his mother and sister's vaginas. It is not stated how or why he knows what their vaginas look like.

In S2E1 55 seconds in: a new familiar accidentally shoots himself in the face while cleaning an old gun. It's just the gunshot noise and then he's engulfed in smoke so it doesn't show a wound. It's about a one second scene.
