I've added two date fields and a textbox that give the total days an animal was in a particular area of our operation.  (see attached)

The Foster days and Vet days field won't update until you close and reopen the form.  

How do I fix this?

Control source.  =DateDiff("d",[FosteredDate],[FosteredDateReturned])

Seems it should. You can try putting a  Me.ReCalc in the AfterUpdate event of two dates involved in the total days calculation.

Private Sub FosteredDate_AfterUpdate()
    Me.ReCalc
End Sub


Private Sub FosteredDateReturned_AfterUpdate()
    Me.ReCalc
End Sub
