Question My new rescue. Bad habits or health issue?

My Maverick was fostered for 5 months at a horse ranch with lots of other dogs and animals. I was told he is between 1.5 and 3 years old. He is underweight and his coat is very thin. Foster mommy said he wouldn't gain any weight because he is really active. His skin does not look like it is in very good condition and he has some spots that he constantly nibbles on. Is this anything I should be immediately concerned about? Are there any natural/inexpensive things I can do to help?

I am going to take him to the vet as soon as possible b/c he has to get blood drawn. He is on Phenobarbital for seizures. I do want to bring up these concerns but wanted some peace of mind before doing so. Thanks in advance.
