There are no safe over the counter meds for this so what you are doing so far is great!
You can also run a vaporizer with plain water in the room she spends time in if it is dry where you are.
Some people use childrens or infant saline spray to help clean really plugged noses out.
And a warm damp compress over the bridge of the nose area can assist the sinuses drain.
If she is not eating well try warming the canned food to make it more aromatic or add some highly aromatic food to the dish such as a fish based food.
Hope this helps you!
