He may have come down harder on that leg causing a soft tissue injury , you can give aspirin as long as he is not on any other anti inflammatory from your vet such as Rimadyl or Previcox etc.
Give the aspirin with food and do not use Tylenol or Ibuprofen type products. make sure it is pure aspirin only, Give with food and you may want to keep some pepcid AC on hand in case he shows signs of stomach upset from the aspirin. Aspirin should only be given for a couple of days , longer use can cause stomach ulcers. I would recommend a vet visit to get the proper anti inflammatory meds. Let your vet know you have given aspirin as other meds may have to wait to be given until the aspirin has left the body.
If you notice any other symptoms appear such as swelling or warmth to that area then do seek Vet care.
I hope this has been helpful to you and your experience here was a pleasant one. Please don't forget to rate the service before you leave so the company compensates me for my time
