Use Control+F if you have one or more of the symptoms already discovered and your browser will highlight those illnesses that have those symptoms. This is so that you can try to use fewer exams to discover the remaining symptoms. You can also sometimes rule things out without having all of the symptoms yet revealed and deliver treatment early, allowing you to get on to the next patient. Pay attention to how the animal looks, and the major symptoms may whittle it down to only one or two possible diseases. If you know the disease, use any of the correct treatments to cure the sick pet.
If you're working on an animal, realize that if you have a low vet skill level you may not have the required ability to treat the disease properly from the exam table. Some require the surgery station to fix at low level, while shots unlock later that can fix them at the exam table. Incorrect treatments will have a thumbs down next to them, indicating that the treatment will not work. In cases where you can't help the animal because no correct cure exists for you, apply a cone of shame to cure the pet but realize the owner would be unhappy with the service you provided and will give your clinic a lower star rating. Still, it lets you move on to the next customer.
Look to the pet's appearance and behavior in-game to see major symptoms, this will help you narrow it down to a couple of diseases. Then check their eyes, nose etc. to determine which illness the animal has and treat them! As an example, if the animal presents the icy fur symptom and there are only 4 symptoms, it is either Ice Fur, Frost Fur Flu, Winterfest Fever or Frozen Mange. If the nose is also glowing, it's Winterfest Fever. If the animal has watery eyes, it's Frosty Fur Flu. This is just to get the diagnosis a little bit faster to help you serve a large volume of customers and stress the animal less, because each test causes stress and you use even more interactions having to calm them. You could eventually come to these conclusions running every test, but it can be a huge time saver.
Sometimes the pet is healthy and the cure is a preventative shot - these visits count as checkups, I suppose. There's also a Fake Healthy situation, which requires a simple shot of fixitol - the only major issues you'll find are high temperature and excessive earwax.
