Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. There might be something specifically in his new environment that he has to get used to that is irritating his nose, similar to an allergy. I would start him off on some Benadryl (1mg/lb every 12 hours) and see if that resolves his symptoms. If he doesn't get better within a few days, I would take him in to the vet for a check up to make sure there isn't more going on. The Benadryl will help with most sneezing or nasal congestion as well, so I would try that first.
