The animals that look dead are just asleep from drugs. By the way, the birds aren't canaries, but (I think) pigeons.

The main character is not believed after his first encounter, and is told by his wife that he must have been seeing things. This is later resolved since his wife also has an encounter.

The main character and his wife both yell at the kids at a few points. No physical harm, but close to emotional abuse, enough to be potentially triggering.

Some horses appear dead, but it turns out later that they were just asleep because they'd been drugged, and that they'll be fine.

Several animals (cows, sheep, birds) appear to die or are found looking dead, but are later on revealed to be drugged with a sleeping agent. There is one shot where birds fall from a tree and struggle on the ground as if they are dying.

The main character cries while fully clothed under a running shower, which may resemble an anxiety attack. Also, his mental breakdown as depicted may cause high anxiety in the viewer.
