Just that he seems like he’s having trouble breathing

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Max has green discharge in both eyes and the sclera is red. Your veterinarian diagnosed it as allergies. Is that a correct summary of the situation?

but he has started panting hard and there are no 24 hour emergency vets in this area. I gave him Benadryl about 30 minutes ago and he is breathing a little better now.

There are also eye drops that might be helpful if this is an allergy. Antihistamine eye drops are very helpful and can be purchased over-the-counter at a human pharmacy. A product called, "Zaditor" is one example. You may also want to use a human eye wash to help keep the eyes moistened. That will also prevent inflammation and decrease pain. That should help reduce the panting even more.
