Read up on food safety for people & pets (many ‘human foods’ like garlic and salt are unsafe near animal friends). If giving pets an occasional treat, just feed plain mash potato. Never give mashed potato to garden birds or wildlife as it contains salt (and fat could smear on feathers, affecting waterproofing & insulation).

It’s worth investing in a good potato masher, as the difference (just like vegetable peelers) will inspire you to cook homemade, and you’ll never go back. Quality brands use fine grids to mash potatoes with no lumps, and have handles to absorb pressure (good for arthritic hands). Find them in good kitchen stores.
