  1. It looks like this meaning for the word has been around for a while.

    Check out http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/vet.

    From Latin veto (“to prohibit”), referring to the practice of having an opportunity to veto a decision before it is finalized.

    to vet
    To thoroughly check or investigate particularly with regard to providing formal approval.

    However, I’m not sure this lack of knowledge is relevant to an evaluation of your mental state.

  2. Vet appears as a verb on Wiktionary.org back to 2005. The Gutenberg version of the 1913 Webster’s Dictionary does not have an entry for vet. I’m narrowing it down.
