Friend, excessive sneezing can be caused by allergies, a foreign body in the nasal cavity, infections, debris/dust in the air, etc. to name a few causes. This is what you can try:

1- Open the hot water in your bathroom or when you shower and allow her to breathe the steam for 5 minutes. This will clear her nasal passages.

2- Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg 1/2 tablet every 12 hours for 5 days. You can buy Benadryl over the counter in any pharmacy.

3- If no improvement after doing the above I would have her checked by your family veterinarian for a hands-on examination.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
