"The fawn jumps over a big dozy lax quack."

Are the adjectives 'big', 'dozy' and 'lax' written in the right order?

It means a big, sleepy, relaxed charlatan.

It can also [STRIKE]means[/STRIKE] mean a big, drowsy, [STRIKE]and[/STRIKE] lazy, and relaxed unqualified [STRIKE]veterinary[/STRIKE] veterinarian.

It's not "unqualified veterinary". It's "unqualified veterinarian".

See above. You need to work on your punctuation.

It's a big, sleepy, relaxed charlatan.

(The question tells you what form the answer should take.)

You should mention that you're obsessed with creating pangrams, lest visitors to the forum think they've been sucked into the Twilight Zone.

Yes, but the sentence seems strained even by pangram standards, and the repetition of a is clumsy and where is i? Couldn't you squeeze quick in there?
