Perhaps it's food she shouldn't be eating - those with high vitamin K content like Kale, spinach, the leafy green vegetables in general. I've read that people on blood thinners need to avoid those foods because it interferes with the effect of the blood thinners.

Garlic is a natural blood thinner.  Aside from staying away from spinich, cabbage, green leafy vegetables, try putting some garlic on her food.
