A girl describes killing her dog, though we do not see it. In another instance the killing of puppies is mentioned. Both take place in the first episode.

In episode 6, a starving magical creature is dismembered and killed. Skip from 12:37 til 13:58. Or skip to 18:20 if you don't want to see it being eaten (it's head is in the background).

Eels are shown in episode 2, during a scene in a cave. They are the focus of the scene and very snake-like.

S1E7: Yennefer mixes herbs and gives them to the girls. The mixed herbs have a psychedelic effect. Technically you could call some of the spells drugs as well. For example in S1E5, Yennefer has a smoking bundle of herbs that she blows towards the couple (specifically the man) that is basically viagra.

There is a vivid scene in Episode 3 where Yennefer undergoes a ritual to turn her into an image of beauty. She refuses painkillers and is shown having her uterus removed and tossed into flames, so it's kind of like a torture scene in which she undergoes intense physical pain.

S1E4: One of Fringilla's comrades slices a piece out of Calanthe's arm and eats the flesh. Fringilla then guts him and is able to determine that Ciri is in Brokilon forest.

Many background characters cheat on spouses with more relevant characters. It's a topic that comes up a few times.

Not autism, no, but I feel it's worth mentioning that Yennefer was born with a hunchback, she is treated like she's "disfigured" due to the hump and her jaw being unsymmetrical, it seems to also be assumed that she is dumb or slow. during the time period, people that are different like a "defect" or "disability" are considered lesser people, disgusting and sold as slaves. Obviously, a hunchback isn't remotely like autism but the abilest bigotry is there.

Yennefer is frequently gaslit by her instructor in covert ways.

Yennefer is obsessed with being "ugly." She is later "cured" by magically changing her appearance to "beautiful." She believes changing her looks makes her a better, more powerful person and will fix everything.

There is a monster that is described as an "overgrown abortion" which [spoiler] was created by a curse placed on the fetus of a dead pregnant woman.

No, but there are repeated discussions of infertility and forced sterilization which may be upsetting to folks who are sensitive to miscarriage (I sure was...)

Geralt is consistently hated and put down for being a mutant and Yennefer is insulted and attacked for a physical deformity and impoverished upbringing

In episode two, there is a scene with an introductory magic lesson. The only black student present is also the only character to be magically injured. She does not die.

Young disabled girl is treated unkindly by many, in a school type setting many teen girls are treated very strictly and not with much worth.

In episode 5 a character is attacked by magical means and struggles to breathe. It goes on for several minutes. It happens right after Geralt finds a sealed clay vessel in the river when he is looking for a djinn.

S1E3 You could consider Geralt closing himself into the crypt as somewhat being buried alive, but I wouldn't consider it truly being buried alive.
