A couple of hallucination/flashback scenes with a dog crawling with a broken back early in the movie. About halfway through in a flashback, a tree branch falls on the dog and breaks his back. The kid that fell from the tree died, but it doesn't actually show the dog die, just the injury.

There is a dog that whines & barks in I think every scene it's in however it's more of a whine of pain than sadness I believe

!!SPOILERS!!


Nelson decides the only way he can make amends with his past is to die for it, he flatlines by himself, but the rest of the characters are able to get to him fast enough & bring him back by the end.

The abuse isn't in the story line, but they have a dog who's wearing something strange on his hind legs, and is crawling/crouching while whining.

None of the characters self harm in what would be considered the "traditional sense" but they all frequently intentionally put themselves in a state where they are temporarily brain dead
