hard to say without seeing, could all be down to his joints so you really need the vet to check him over.

If it's sudden though the heat could be from swelling of a soft tissue injury. if so then a cold compress may help - try a well wrung out cold wet towel on the leg whilst he's resting. He'll let you know whether it's helping.. obviously don't keep trying if he's not happy with it.
