Default Tatted fur

My rabbit Lucky is having his heavy molt, but his fur is coming out so much, I brush him twice a day and in patches I can almost see his skin. Ill post a pic later

As long as he doesn't have scaly skin or dandruff, it sounds like he is just having a heavy molt. Just keep him brushed and plucked as much as possible to reduce the amount of fur he might ingest while grooming. And lots of hay to keep that gut motility moving well.

I would not be concerned, unless the molting goes on for more than a few weeks. It's normal for rabies to shed in patches.
