There is a short subplot with an NPC’s dog that is not plot relevant, but it does display a dog getting sick and eventually passing away if you tune into all of them.

Yes, if you have a successful ambush, Joker will jump on top of the guard's shoulder and kinda chops their head off. This is semi-graphic, the guard turns into a Shadow instead of dying, in which you have to fight them after chopping their head off but characters aren't decapacitated by any other means.

After the first palace, the Phantom Thieves celebrate by going to a buffet. Ryuji overeats and runs to the bathroom. Nothing is heard or shown, but Morgana briefly references it after. When your class takes a trip to Hawaii, it's mentioned that Mishima drank foreign tap water and is heard in pain in the bathroom saying "my... stomach...", but there's no sound effects and no implication of anything specific. Characters occasionally have spoken lines like "makes me wanna p*" but not often and it's very easy to skip them.

The game pulls no punches with its depiction of corrupt law enforcement, right down to having a detective as a major antagonist and even opening with the main hero being mistreated by sadistic police officers. That being said, one of the major characters expresses a desire to join the police force so that she can turn things around, so you may want to keep that in mind.

In an early cutscenes one is used on the protagonist during interrogation.

Later in the same room, after the prosecutor enters the room, more are seen around the room. To avoid seeing those, you can look away between when the prosecutor enters the room, and until they say "bastards".

In the clinic, there is a poster with less detailed, cartoonish representations of syringes.

During the second palace Ann is encouraged to be a nude model for Yusuke's painting to open up a door in real life, but she comedically avoids actually taking her clothes off.

Yes, when a main character attempts to stop a car. Another example is when a side-character is about to be hit by a truck

A side character is shown to have been hit by a car, killing them. The actual collision is not seen, but the character jumping in front of the car and the aftermath is.

No, but some nuclear abilities are portrayed as explosions.

Aside from the stylized blood, there are a few cutscenes showing the real deal.

To my knowledge it usually only happens in The Metaverse, as characters have normal melee and ranged attacks (which are usually guns). But there is an attempted assassination quite late in the game where the main character gets shot in the head. Whether you live or die depends on the choices you make during the interrogation scene before that, but regardless of your decision the cutscene shows the protag getting shot in the head. It should also be noted that the animation is not very graphic.
