I would never tell you not to see a veterinarian, especially if you are worried. However a simple thing to try is to keep her in the room when you take a shower (not getting her wet). The steam helps clear the sinus cavity and upper airways.

Signs to watch for that are serious:
Green or yellow nasal discharge
Loss of appetite
Lethargy
Elevated temperature
Signs persist
Anything that makes you concerned

Good luck. :pawprint:
