Make sure his appetite is still good as sometimes a stuffed up nose will cause kitties to go off their food. You could add about 250mg of L-lysine to his wet food twice a day, and if he gets more congested, hang out with him in the bathroom while a hot shower is running. Otherwise, there isn't much a vet will be able to do. They tend to be trigger-happy with the antibiotics, and unless there is a secondary infection, antibiotics are useless against viruses.
