Atideva states that there are special mentions of Ayurveda in Agnipurana. However, the time is behind Charaka Samhita etc. That is why there are many verses s cited in Charaka Samhita. There is no exclusivity about knowledge of Ayurveda in Agni Purana. There is description of treatments for animals as elephants and horses.
