    I wouldn't just start antibiotics until you know more about what it could be. Perhaps she dunk her head into the water bowl and got a little water up her nose.

    Find out first if there are any other symptoms. Look her over carefully and make as many observations as you can. Is she sneezing? How does her breathing sound? Is she acting tired, listless, or lethargic? How well is she eating or drinking? Does her poops look normal? Check for anything else that seems out of the ordinary I may have missed asking about.
