Could blood thinners dissolve the blood vessels as well?

In brief: No

The blood thinners really do not " thin" the blood they alter the cascade of chemical events that lead to platelet clot formation.
So in reality the blood isn't thinner it just has a difficult time clotting. THese drugs do not dissolve the vessels.
