* In the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series, the T-Virus infects ''everything''. Zombie dogs, birds and plants are common, and we've seen oversized mutant snakes, sharks, worms, crocodiles, lions, an ''elephant''...
* In ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' haunted conservatory at Spookyraven Manor contains a pet cemetery where some of the dead pets have been reanimated. You can encounter skeletal cats, skeletal hamsters, and even skeletal monkeys. It's possible, albeit difficult, to assemble an entire misshapen animal skeleton out of bones from all three types of monsters, then reanimate it and use it as your own spooky pet.

* The ZombieApocalypse in ''The Rising'' and ''City of the Dead'' has demonic spirits animating pretty much every corpse over a certain size, human and otherwise. Most notably, one character is killed by a zombie sewer crocodile biting his head off, [[KillEmAll while the last two humans are offed by zombie rats]].

* According to local legend, Pond Lane, Charing Cross, London, where Sir Francis Bacon experimented with packing a chicken with snow to see if it would act as a preservative, only to catch a cold and die, is haunted, not by the ghost of Sir Francis, but that of the half-plucked chicken.

* ''Film/BlackSheep2007'' involves zombie sheep who turn humans into weresheep.
* ''Film/DawnOfTheDead1978'' contains a brief shot of a zombie alligator in the opening sequence.
* In ''Film/{{Daybreakers}}'', vampirism effects humans and animals. The main character, a vampire scientist trying to find a viable blood substitute, has a laboratory full of vampirised test animals, and dialogue reveals that there was a rash of forest fires just after the vampire outbreak when newly vampirised animals wandered into the daylight and caught fire.

* One of the [[MagicAIsMagicA rules]] of necromancy in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' is that it's often not worth it to raise a zombie animal, as animals leave shallower "psychic footprints" than humans and thus don't have as much power when raised (consider that a human zombie, in deference to tradition, is typically as strong as the Terminator). Harry, however, being CrazyAwesome, latches onto two of the other rules -- first, that it is ''technically'' not illegal to raise animals, and second, that the older something is, the deeper its "footprint" becomes -- and applies these rules to [[spoiler: [[TyrannosaurusRex Sue, the 65 million year old T. rex skeleton at the Natural History Museum]]]]. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Awesomeness ensued.]]
** [[spoiler:Consider that a fossil isn't even an actual skeleton, but an ''imprint'' filled with ''minerals''. So basically, he's reanimated a dinosaur partially made of rock.]]
