The sign for VET
is generally just fingerspelled:
SUPPOSE YOUR DOG SICK, YOU CARRY VET?
Signing note: I notice that at high speed the letter "E" in the
fingerspelled sign "VET" tends to mutate into two bent fingers resting on
the thumb (since you recently used those two fingers to do the letter "V").
Or, if needed for context, you could sign "ANIMAL +
DOCTOR" the first time and
from then on spell V-E-T
A student asked me if this spelling "V-E-T" could be used for "vet" as in a
Yes, it can. You just have to remember "context." If it were me, the first
time around I'd sign, "HE
ARMY BEFORE HE" to
indicate that he was in the military.
