Firstly, there is no visible dog. At the beginning, you see a line of children walking with a wagon with some sort of dead animal in it. It literally looks like a big lump of fur, it was most likely a dog however it's not a very realistic looking dead dog, not at all distressing. If you're still worried, look away when you see the children with masks near the beginning of the film.
There is a deer's head mounted on the wall of Judd's house that you see the first time you see the inside of his house.

There is a pretty bad scene around the middle of the movie where the dad turns around and sees the cat eating a bird's stomach while the bird is still alive and flapping on the bed. This only lasts for a few seconds.
*****SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE ORIGINAL*****

The cat gets hit by the truck however you don't see it happen. You see it laying on the side of the road all bloody, however also not the best with realism (I have a huge phobia of animal death. I have panic attacks and have thrown up from animals dying in movies and I was completely unaffected however I've seen the original and expected it.)
There's a part where Louis goes to euthanise the zombie cat with a needle however does not do it.

An (undead) child is kicked, grabbed, and choked. Albeit they ARE undead, it’s still unpleasant.

Kind of? Louis yells at Rachel for (obviously) being freaked out by what he did in the graveyard. He’s kind of going insane at this point but it’s still condescending and controlling.

After being stabbed multiple times in the stomach a character labors to breathe toward the end of the movie. Also during some of Rachel’s panic attacks she is short of breath. Another character becomes short of breath after being drugged.

It’s implied but not shown that a character probably burns towards the end of the movie. They approach them in a car with a gas can, and a house was seen burning shortly before this scene.

Without giving spoilers, one of the kids dies, however, there is no blood/gore shown. You do not see the child actually die, it's just a very intense and sad scene for the parents.
